Catalin Cimpanu reporting at Zero Day, provides us with the Litany of Telephony Flaws: 2019 Edition (also known as just another day in Security Dreamland)...

Thanks to the Gulliver-level reportage of Josh Constine, writing at TechCrunch, we have now learned of what the company has monikered Project Atlas. Enjoy the future, it's on your kids phones, and they get paid to!
