    At Full Disclosure, an interesting post about a possible Android phone MitM hack.
    Characteristics are listed; link;

    '- full active MitM against CDMA and 4G connections from Rio to carriers.
    - MitM positioning for remote exploitation to ring0 on Android and PC.
    - fall back to userspace only or non-persistent methods when
    persistent rootkit unattainable.
    - many attack trees and weaponized exploits. escalation from easy pwns
    up to specialized techniques and tactics until success is achieved.
    - simultaneous attack across CDMA and 4G connections using full power
    in these LICENSED bands.
    - operated continuously (except for outages :) from early Saturday
    until 8am Monday.
    - designed with intent: mass exploitation, reconnaissance,
    exfiltration, eavesdropping.

    And more talk at link and link
