TeliaSonera's Statement on SIM Card Security

“The information regarding hacked SIM cards is something TeliaSonera takes very seriously. We will now initiate an investigation to see if there are any connections to TeliaSonera. Gemalto is one of our SIM card suppliers and therefore a part of the investigation. We will now contact them to get more information”, says Henrik Westman, Head of Media Relations, TeliaSonera.

“Our customers’ security and privacy is a top priority for us. Hacker attacks - if directed to mobile phones, SIM cards or networks - is a problem for all societies that we must fight together with other telcos and authorities. TeliaSonera argues that all government communications surveillance, regardless of country, should be in accordance with the law, and the scope and method must be transparent”, says Henrik Westman.
