Here's an intersting article about cell phone providers: Official: crackers have broken into GPRS billing. Seems that this is another case of security through obfuscation (hiding it in plain sight). Here's a great quote: "The GPRS Transfer Protocol, GTP, provides no security to protect the communications between GPRS networks...". Seems Checkpoint has developed a Firewall to work with this system to block this issue.
