AdaptiveMobile Detects Sophisticated Attacks on Signalling Networks across Five Continents
MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS – AdaptiveMobile Security, the world leader in mobile network security, today announced it has detected increasingly sophisticated attacks via the next generation of signalling protocols being used for 4G. In new research released at Mobile World Congress 2018, AdaptiveMobile presented the industry’s first ever overview of real-life attacks launched over the Diameter protocol.
“This research is the final piece of intel that will drive mobile operators to put defences in place to protect their networks against attacks over Diameter. Diameter vulnerabilities were theoretical up until now; however, this new research clearly demonstrates that they are actually being exploited in the real world, meaning the risk is real and must be addressed,” said Cathal Mc Daid, Chief Intelligence Officer of AdaptiveMobile Security.
To acquire these insights, the Company performed analysis of international Diameter traffic from ten operators’ networks worldwide and found suspicious activity within them. The research conducted analysed Diameter traffic travelling to and from more than 80 countries across five continents and detected a range of malicious activity, from simple to complex, over Diameter networks, affecting both mobile subscribers and mobile networks.
“Most importantly, carriers need to understand what is being detected and cannot rely on simple categorisation or rules to decipher what is malicious activity and what is not.” Mc Daid continued: “The threat is now proven, but without an added layer of intelligence, malicious traffic will be hidden in amongst the noise. This is critical, as Diameter use widens and SS7 security improves we expect rogue actors to exploit Diameter more and more.”
AdaptiveMobile has been working with operator networks around the globe to analyse their SS7 network data since launching its Signalling Protection in 2015. The Diameter protocol is the next-generation in signalling networks and as service providers roll out IP-based LTE networks – which present an evolved threat landscape – there is a growing demand for broader signalling protection on both SS7 and Diameter networks.

LIAF: Experts at the European Parlament - E-Cigarettes Are a Potential Game Changer for European Health20.3.2018 18:27 | Pressemelding
The following is a statement from LIAF – Lega Italiana Anti Fumo: The panel discussion at the EU Parliament recognises the potential benefits of electronic cigarettes and for European countries to treat these products as regular consumer products to ensure equal access for all Europeans. Following a debate in which leading scientific experts presented the state-of-the-art evidence around e-cigarettes, it became clear that public health is increasingly moving on from an approach that solely advocates ‘quit-or-die’ to a harm reduction strategy. “I’m glad to have brought the Parliament attention to this important issue for public health. Today we have listened to the results of scientific studies and researches from a high-level expert’s roundtable, which have illustrated to us the advantages of electronic cigarettes and the potential public health benefits that these products pose when compared to the conventional cigarettes. As decision-makers, we need to take into considerations these

Dubai Breaks Ground on World’s Biggest CSP Project20.3.2018 16:10 | Pressemelding
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, broke ground on the 4th phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This is the biggest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) investment project in the world, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model, and will generate 700MW on a single site. It will have the world’s tallest solar tower at 260 metres, and the largest thermal energy storage capacity in the world. It will provide clean energy to 270,000 residences, reducing 1.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The project will use two technologies: a 600MW parabolic basin complex and a 100MW solar tower, over 43 square kilometres. This project, with AED14.2 billion in investments, achieved the lowest Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of USD 7.3 cents per kW/h. This press release features multimedia.
