My cousin who is working for one of Asian security companies shared some really interesting and shocking article about simjacker vulnerability and related risks. Here it is https://positive-tech.com/research/first-steps-for-mitigating-simjacker-related-risks-right-now/ Actually I suppose this topic important enough to make a separate thread for it! What do you think? Is there anything we can protect ourselves with?

If I got the article right there is some special configuration of the MNO infrastructure to block SMS messages that have content coding characteristic of STK messages. I always thought that sms for authentification is not the best option. Now I am sure about it!
