Permanent LTE exploits steer users to rogue websites

These attacks aren’t exactly trivial. You need to be physically close to your target, and sniffing hardware isn’t cheap (Ars Technica places the cost at roughly $4,000). Whoever uses the attacks will likely be either a committed thief or a surveillance agency. The problem, as you might have gathered, is that you can’t patch against this. Your best bet is to only visit sites using HTTP Strict Transport Security or DNS Security extensions, and that isn’t always easy. Although the like of facing an attack isn’t that high, there might not be a permanent solution until you’re using 5G. – Jon Fingas, Engadget https://engt.co/2yYxQ3a
