Chinese cellphones without IMEI number - New Threat

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

We have seen a big rise in technology being used by Criminals and Terrorists. There was a big fuss about backdoored routers and switches from chinese vendors to the FBI. Now there is a new emerging threat from Chinese Cellphones that do not display IMEI numbers when registering with SIM Cards/ serice providers. It becomes very difficult to track moments of these malacious individuals if the IMEI numbers are not registered with Cellphone Service providers. Indian government is now getting more concerned about the import of such cell phones and abuse due to the recent attacks in Indian. One thing cell phone service providers can do is to block such cellphones from using the network for making calls.
