Millions of Sim cards are vulnerable to hack attack says Karsten Nohl

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23402988

Millions of feature phones are vulnerable to this new attack.

Looks like running a Osmocombb fake base station with a $10 Calypso phone should be sufficient to carry out the attack.

Femtocell 2013 Update – 3G signal over Internet for your home

A Femtocell is a small box that plugs into your internet router & provides 3G phone coverage in poor reception areas.

The Register has just done a round-up of the Femtocells currently available for UK users. It’s worth a read.

Vodafone are still the only network selling the Sure Signal boxes to anyone who wants one for £100 each. Although other providers will apparently suppply a free box if you threaten to leave.

italian supreme court affirms workers tumor risk link from wireless mobile phones

From today’s Microwave News bulletin:

Many of you may have already heard that the Italian
Supreme Court has affirmed a worker’s compensation
claim filed by a man who developed a tumor after using
wireless phones daily for 12 years. This is the first time
a court has ruled in favor of such a link.

The decision may turn out to be an important
legal precedent, but it also represents a defeat for
a small coterie of experts on ICNIRP and at the
Karolinska Institute in Stockholm whose
“don’t worry, be happy” outlook was rejected by the court.
