- Vulnerability allows attackers to track phone's location
- Additional attacks could let hackers intercept phone calls and messages
- Vulnerability impacts both 4G and 5G networks

More worrisome is their claim that the vulnerabilities they have discovered could also allow hackers to intercept phone calls.
