Simjacker is the first real attack where the malicious instructions are sent directly in the SMS message. Interestingly, messages are not stored in either inbox or outbox, so everything happens completely unnoticed by the victim.
According to the researchers, attackers can exploit the vulnerability regardless of the brand of the user’s device. A similar vulnerability was recorded on devices of many manufacturers, including Apple, Samsung, Google, HUAWEI and others.
