Ss7 (signaling system No7) Attack ((FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE ONLY!!!))
You can read text listen to phone calls and track mobile phone users’ locations with just the knowledge of their phone number using a vulnerability in the worldwide mobile phone network infrastructure.
SS7, which is called Common Channel Signalling System 7 (CCSS7) in the US or Common Channel Interoffice Signaling 7 (CCIS7) in the UK, is a system that connects one mobile phone network to another. It was first developed in 1975 and has many variants.
Most networks use protocols defined by the American National Standards Institute and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.
SS7 is a set of protocols allowing phone networks to exchange the information needed for passing calls and text between each other and to ensure correct billing. It also allows users on one network to roam on another.
Once you have access to the SS7 system, you can essentially have access to the same amount of information and snooping capabilities as security services.
You can transparently forward calls, giving you the ability to record or listen in to them.
You can also read SMS messages sent between phones, and track the location of a phone using the same system that the phone networks use to help keep a constant service available and deliver phone calls, texts and data.
So what does one require to make this work:
2- Linux OS
3- SDK for SS7
Installation of SS7 in Linux:
1. Log on as root.
2. Download the Dialogic NaturalAccess SS7 Monitor Software from http://www.dialogic.com.
3. Unzip and untar the download file by entering the following commands:
gzip -d filename.tgztar -xvf filename.tar
Where filename is the base portion of the name of the file that you downloaded.
4. Run the monitor_install script located in the directory in which you opened the tar file, and follow the prompts from the script.
Note: Do not change the default install location
5. Run one of the following commands to implement the environment changes:
/etc/profile.d/txbase.sh Reboot the system. For additional release information, refer to the release_notes.pdf file located in the software.
