Air gapped PC’s not safe anymore

Researchers have proven that even air-gapped computers are not safe any more as they can be hacked through simple devices such as a cell phone.

The researchers who are based out of Israel achieved this extra-ordinary feat simply by making using of the GSM network, electro-magnetic waves a simple mobile phone.
The researchers wrote in a paper, “Unlike some other recent work in this field, [this attack] exploits components that are virtually guaranteed to be present on any desktop/server computer and cellular phone.”
They have called for companies which work with sensitive information to improve their security standards so that they don’t fall prey to suck kind of cyber attacks.
