Gap in the Galaxy phones from Samsung allows recording calls remotely




Researchers succeeded in the field of protection and security of information in the review of the vulnerability in Galaxy phones from Samsung, which allows eavesdropping on calls and recorded remotely without leaving any trace.

The researchers reviewed the experience through their participation in the Pwn2Own contest, which took place in Tokyo, Japan, has already managed to intercept calls made using the Galaxy phones and recorded.

The cause of the problem is due to a slide Baseband signal and causing a gap within the Galaxy S devices 6 treatment, and S 6 EDGE, in addition to Knott 4.

It can exploit the gap by converting the call to fake servers to the track connection, and then return the call to the main service provider, and thus passes the connection from the first person, to placebo server, then continues to reach the second person without feeling any party to the existence of this type of conversion, and thus placebo server can listen to the call and recorded.

He declined Daniel Komaromy and Nico Golde, based on experience and the discoverers of the gap, to disclose any technical details about this gap and tried to keep it away from everyone to prevent any party from exploitation.

The company did not comment Samsung yet about the position of vulnerability, especially as it forced the use of the latest organs that work with the latest version of the Android system, but can be closed via the driver only Baseband chip without the need to replace the slide update.

It is noteworthy that Google has revealed that smartphone Galaxy S 6 Edge Galaxy S6 Edge of Samsung’s Android system and the worker, suffers from 11 security vulnerability “high intensity” caused by amendments added by the company on the operating system.
