The discovery of this set of vulnerabilities may sound like just another security story; however, the potentialfor abuse here is enormous. In addition to tracking an individual’s location, their location can also be spoofed or altered. This presents unique challenges for criminal investigations as criminals can use this to provide false alibis or even frame another person. The research also proves it possible for an attacker to generate and distribute fake emergency alerts. As seen in the recent case of the false alarm for a threat against Hawaii, this could be abused to create massive disruption.
