Mobile Network Security is key for successful business operation and is a top priority for all MNOs. Threats to Mobile Network Security can come in multiple forms with some being more harmful than others. The most common forms of threats to mobile networks is SMS spam and SMS flood. SMS spam can contain unwanted content which could possibly be harmful to subscribers and degrade network performance, while SMS flood can increase congestion and even completely overload the signaling network. Some of more dangerous threats such as SMS faking and SIM Boxes can negatively affect the operator’s revenues. In particular, SMS faking is a major threat. It illegally assumes the identity of the SMSC and thus depriving the operator of termination fees. Other threats include SMS spoofing which can damage customer experience and strain customer support and SMS viruses which can cause multiple problems to the network and subscribers.
