“Currently, operators are placing really handful of security steps in place to shield against these vulnerabilities”

Cellular operators continue to be highly exposed to vulnerabilities in the GTP protocol, rendering practically just about every community open up to denial of assistance assaults, impersonations and fraud campaigns.

The GTP protocol is a tunneling protocol defined by the 3GPP standards to have Standard Packet Radio Assistance (GPRS) inside of 3G/4G networks security difficulties with it are broadly recognised.

Protection company Optimistic Systems explained its exams for 28 telecom operators in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America located that just about every one particular was susceptible, with the assaults in some areas ready to be carried out simply with a mobile mobile phone GTP difficulties also straight affect 5G networks.
