The Text Message That Can Crash Your iPhone

 

iphone2.jpg
 

A flood of recent forum posts and online articles are all talking about a new text message that can crash an iPhone. By sending an iPhone a special set of charcters, called Unicode, the taret device will crash and shutdown the phone, causing it to reboot. The unicode, in image form, is posted below.

The attack works by causing a string to get written to the phones memory, which in turn causes the notification banner to crash the phone since it is unable to display that certain string of text. The current workaround to this is to go into your iPhone settings and visit the Notifications -> Messages -> Show Previews, and set this to OFF. This will stop the attack in question, however other test messaging apps that use the iPhone notification banner could still be at risk.

Fortunately this glitch in the iOS system is just a pain, and it doesn't appear to grant anybody access to the phones system. In the world of security issues, this falls squarely in the 'childish prank' category, but a phone crashing bug is an issue either way. Apple is expected to release a software update patch within the next week.

Have you fallen victim to this text message and had your iOS device crash, or do you know somebody that has? Sound off in the comments below.

Sierra Wireless Announces Band 14 LTE Support

sierra_logo_new.jpg

In a press release today from Sierra Wireless , Band 14 LTE support has been announced for their InMotion Solution oMG2000 mobile gateway. This gateway is certified for use on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint LTE networks, with the ability to carrier switch on demand. The oMG2000 offers support for the dedicated FirstNet network which is being deployed for public safety and other first responders on Band 14 LTE without sacrificing connectivity to traditional cellular networks.

“For first responders, maintaining connectivity is critically important to safety and effective incident management,” said Brian Anderson, Vice President of Product Marketing, Enterprise Solutions for Sierra Wireless. “These were some of the drivers behind deployment of the Band 14 network, but with less than universal coverage, there needs to be redundancy built into the system with seamless switching between networks. The oMG Mobile Gateway provides that capability with support for Band 14 along with the three largest commercial LTE networks, so that first responders can be confident they have access to the best coverage available, no matter where they are deployed.”

Band 14 has been deployed in a few areas of the US already and has been tested in numerous pilot programs. Since FirstNet is not fully deployed yet, Sierras ability to seamlessly switch between the dedicated network and commercial networks is key.

SEC Consult NetUSB Vulnerability Warning

netusb.jpg
The SEC Consult Vulnerability Lab released information on a new software vulnerability last Tuesday, the 19th of May. This vulnerability is focused around the NetUSB component of Linux operating systems. In short, this vulnerability allows an attacker access to a target router by stack buffer overflow attack.

As of the time of their release, the SEC Consult had identified 92 different routers from various hardware manufacturers that could fall victim to the NetUSB attack. NetUSB is a system that allows a user to plug in a device to the routers USB port, a network printer, storage device, etc. and then access that device on the local network as if it was connected to the PC directly. The attack is described, "By specifying a name longer than 64 characters, the stack buffer overflows when the computer name is received from the socket. Easy as a pie, the ‘90s are calling and want their vulns back, stack buffer overflow." This attack is even possible when devices are not attached to the USB ports as the NetUSB service is still running.

The SEC Consult has put out a list of affected router manufacturers, including some big names like TP-Link, Western Digital, and Netgear. 3Gstore has gone over the list of affected devices and we are happy to report at this time, nothing on our store contains this vulnerability. Nevertheless, we have reached out to our vendors for more information.

Peplink has responded via their official support forums . Eddy Yeung of the Peplink Team said,

"Hi there,

All of our Peplink | Pepwave gears are not affected.

-Eddy"
 
Cradlepoint has responded to our inquiry as well.
 
"The simple answer is we don't use NetUSB :)"
 
At this point all Cradlepoint and Pepwave devices are unaffected.

We'll update this article if we receive any other information on affected routers or manufacturer responses. Visit the SEC Consults site for their official release and links to all affected devices.

Updated 5/21/15 with a response from Cradlepoint.

Cradlepoint ARC CBA850 Modem Carrier Switch

 

cba850.jpg

New from Cradlepoint, the ARC CBA850 is a mobile broadband adapter, meant to bring cellular connectivity to any device that requires it. The CBA850 is purpose built for temporary networks, or networks where wired connections are impractical (cable, DSL, satellite). The CBA850 serves as a primary-connection device converting mobile broadband to ethernet for point-of-sale devices, digital signs and kiosks, businesses, and more. When paired with a multi-WAN router, the CBA850 is a powerful failover connection with plenty of features meant to minimize connection downtime.


With a dual SIM modem, you can easily flash the router to another carrier at will. This allows for carrier diversity and reduced downtime and cost in truck rolls and replacing hardware. The video below demonstrates just how easy it is to flash the ARC CBA850 to work on another carrier. Beyond this 'manual' method, there is a more automated method which takes advantage of Cradlepoints powerful Enterprise Cloud Manager platform. With ECM you can flash dozens of remote devices all at the same time, right through the cloud. By deploying an 850 with dual SIMs installed from day 1, switching carriers has never been easier.
