Are you a fan of having textmates and giving up your mobile numbers to the persons who you dont know and plugging it up on Wanted Pangga (Cebu's FM radio program) or dialing some numbers? I bet, after you will read this post, you will change your mind.



Recently, it was a buzz in Trust Digital. An attacker with correct and right toolkits and skill could hijack anyone's phone remotely by just sending SMS (short Message Service) to the device. With the Trust Digital demo on Youtube, a hijacker sends a text message to the prey phone which opens up a web browser and downloads an executable file that directs it, steals data off the phone and send an SMS to the predator's phone.

This strategy is commonly known a "Midnight Raid Attack" since it is very effective when the prey is asleep, the predator then could send a text message to the phone without the owner's knowledge.
