Well, whilst iOS and others are getting hardened, everyone is ignoring the GSM baseband processors. This second operating system was written years ago, and is proprietary to Qualcomm (and others) and is riddled with bugs and security vulnerabilities. As IMSI catchers are getting cheaper (e.g. Stingray), it is getting easier to execute malicious code on your ...

While not theoretically impossible, this is highly unlikely. For this to happend there would need to be a vulnerability in iOS that could be leveraged for this. While there are vulnerabilities in iOS (and in any software), unless I have missed something there is nothing that could be used for an attack just through a phone call. That does not rule out ...

A key point of definition of 'script kiddie' is that they can run scripts but don't necessarily understand how or why the scripts work. So yes, absolutely. If you have a vulnerability on your phone, your attacker can run an exploit that will gain access. They may not know how it works; they may just try a bunch of exploits hoping one will succeed. There is ...
