@DudeHazard @thegrugq Well, Gemalto has a press conference in Paris at 1030 WET. They’ll have questions to answer.

@esizkur @thegrugq Whew! I was worried I’d just spent two days being an arsehat in the media across Australia. (Not the first time etc.)

@Nanso44 Well, the Gemalto press release was only mailed to me 90 minutes ago. It can’t have been available for long.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nanso44

@ericscheid Well yes. And good if it was a useful format, and didn’t have tracking and a bloody advert.

via TweetDeck in reply to ericscheid

@esizkur @thegrugq It’s the genuine press release, sent to me by Gemalto’s PR firm. And now it’s on their website. gemalto.com/press/Pages/Ge…

To wrap that burst of tweets, here’s the Gemalto press release again. Well, my PDF export of it. stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via TweetDeck

Gemalto says its comments assume the leaked NSA/GCHQ documents are real and “refer accurately to events” in 2010 to 2011.

via TweetDeck

“None of our other products were impacted by this attack,” says Gemalto’s press release.

via TweetDeck

Gemalto says even if a key theft happened only 2G comms vulnerable. 3G/4G networks “not vulnerable to this type of attack.”

via TweetDeck

“The attacks … only breached its office networks and could not have resulted in a massive theft of SIM encryption keys.”

via TweetDeck

“The investigation … give[s] us reasonable grounds to believe that an operation by NSA and GCHQ probably happened.es
