Hard blow for telephone operators and standard 4G (and 5G) … A new attack, named after Torpedohas just come out in the open.
The latter uses networks to use data transmitted during calls or sending / receiving a message … The perpetrators therefore put several calls interrupted in a few minutes to extract information from the smartphone.
Thus, it is possible to know the location of the iPhone, but that's not all …
A new attack Torpedo worries the operators
The attack also makes it possible to block the arrival of certain SMS and even to send it without the owner's knowledge. Even worse, if the thug has some hardware, he can also get his hands on the IMSI phone, so the international mobile subscriber identity.
It is already known that American operators are suffering and are aware of this attack. The French operators have not yet reacted to this affair.
