Submission + - DIY IDS Identifies Hacked Smartphones 1 1

An anonymous reader writes: A group of researchers from LGM Security has leveraged a Verizon Samsung femtocell — a small cellular station for extending cell phone coverage range indoors or at the cell edge — to create a relatively cheap cellular intrusion detection system that enables enterprises and private individuals to test their or their employees' smartphones for malware. Their solution involves the femtocell and a Linux-based Snort server through which the traffic to and from the phone is redirected. All in all, they spent less than $300 to set the system up. They have also helpfully shared the source code that allowed them to do all that.

The last person that quit or was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong -- until the next person quits or is fired.
