More SIM Cards Vulnerable to Simjacker Attack Than Previously Disclosed

The flaw in both S@T and WIB Browsers can be exploited to perform several tasks on a targeted device just by sending an SMS containing a specific type of spyware-like code.

  • Retrieving targeted device’ location and IMEI information,
  • Sending fake messages on behalf of victims,
  • Distributing malware by launching victim’s phone browser and forcing it to open a malicious web page,
  • Performing premium-rate scams by dialing premium-rate numbers,
  • Spying on victims’ surroundings by instructing the device to call the attacker’s phone number,
  • Performing denial of service attacks by disabling the SIM card, and
  • Retrieving other information like language, radio type, battery level, etc.
