+ - Flaws allow every 3G device to be tracked->

Submitted by mask.of.sanity
mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "New privacy threats have been uncovered by security researchers that could allow every device operating on 3G networks to be tracked.

The vulnerabilities could be exploited with cheap commercial off-the-shelf technology to reveal the location of phones and other 3G-capable devices operating on all 3G compliant networks.

It was similar, but different, to previous research that demonstrated how attackers could redirect a victim's outgoing traffic to different networks."
