Defcon 19: 4G and CDMA hack

If this is accurate then the mobile industry just got kicked in the teeth.  Out of an abundance of caution I'm re-imaging my phone.

So far I've not seen any confirmation of this. It is possibly a hoax. Can't believe everything you read on FD.

Can anyone confirm?

Re: Defcon 19: 4G and CDMA hack

There is some anecdotal confirmation from various folks but nothing I'd consider hard proof.  I saw various update alerts on my phone on Saturday but I ignored them, and I was getting certificate errors when I started to browse to my junk mail bucket (hotmail) at which point I killed the session.  Some other folks have posted that they had more explicit events (emails from themselves and such), but still nothing outrageous.  The laptop I had tethered to my droid was a blank/patched ubuntu install that was nuked 5 minutes after I walked back into my house. As for the phone, well, it was time to try out cyanogenmod 7 anyway.

Me, I received some emails twice and they arrived quite late (6 hours after they have been sent to me). But hey, I was expecting this to happen!
