Mobile devices have become the primary gateway for cyber security attacks. In a 2018 Enterprise Mobility Exchange poll, 28% of users identified fake WiFi networks as the biggest threat to mobile devices, with malware infections coming in at 27%, malicious mobile apps at 25%, and phishing attacks at 20%. Attackers could leverage a compromised identifier to use mobile Internet at the legitimate user’s expense and carry out fraud and impersonation. Attackers can also hijack user session data containing relevant identifiers (e.g., phone number) of a real subscriber and impersonate him to access the Internet. “These attacks can also be used by a dishonest MNO to create roaming traffic, with the MNO (falsely) charging another operator for non-existent roaming activity of that operator’s subscribers,” states the report.
