Has NSA Hacked Your iPhone SIM Card?
Can you imagine that NSA hacked iPhone SIM cards. Last week it was reported about the newest leak from Edward Snowden. He stated that the NSA had hacked the SIM cards of multiple smartphones on Earth, including iPhones.
It is really sad news, as this hack allowed the NSA to get into your phone without a court order. But today, Gemalto the Dutch company responsible for 2 billion SIM cards introduced a statement, in which it they persuade that all this fears of a massive NSA invasion are much overblown.
Gemalto is the world leader in digital security and in its statement persuades all community that they devoted the necessary resources to examine and understand the boundaries of such sophisticated techniques. They also added that initial conclusions already shows that Gemalto SIM units including banking cards, passports and other products and platforms are secure and the Company doesn’t expect to suffer from a significant financial prejudice.
Gemalto claims that they will launch their full findings and conclusions on Wednesday. To prove its beliefs they also invite security experts to look them over, to make sure they haven’t missed anything.
Can you realize the seriousness of this situation. Gemalto doesn’t deny that NSA hacked iPhone and others smartphone SIM cards. So there are another interesting questions was Snowden’s information much overblown or is there some other hidden information we’re not aware of yet? Maybe we will get all the answers on Wednesday.
