+ - DIY IDS Identifies Hacked Smartphones 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
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."
