Teenager ‘leak’ found at T-Mobile in the US that free unlimited data enable




Imagine you find a way to use free unlimited data on a 4G network. What are you doing? This American teen wrote a post on Medium and then pulled the proxy that he had made to free unlimited browsing offline again.

The student Jacob Ajit had located a prepaid SIM card from the American branch of T-Mobile who wanted only online at T-Mobile, which he voorschotelde a portal to let him choose between different rates. Ajir wanted to see if he could still come online, and it did. He discovered that he Ookla Speedtest app could run on his phone without ever paying anything, says Jacob Ajit Medium.

When diving into the operation of the app showed that pulled all content servers with the sole agreement “/ speedtest’ entry in the URL. He suspected that T-Mobile URLs with “/ speed test / ‘had gewhitelist and tried it out by making a / speedtest’ folder on its own server. To his surprise, he could easily see his favorite Taylor Swift videos through T-Mobiles 4G network, still without paying anything.

The provider did not respond, but presumably wants the American branch of the provider give customers a chance to test the speed of the network before they take out a subscription and therefore URLs with “/ speed test” in it gewhitelist. According to the teen provider could fix the leak by limiting the whitelist to servers Ookla’s Speedtest. Ajit had made a proxy to any URL to convert a URL with “/ speed test, but for fear of legal action from T-Mobile which has taken offline.
