Our Adversaries Probably Do!I n the cyber world there are many vulnerabilities that safety minded user s should be aw are of. Some have already been written about in previou s Cybercrime Prevention Flyers B ut recent mass media reporting ha s focused attention on the vulnerabilities of fitness devices. The fitnes s device s vulnerability i s due to it being location aware. Location aware describes a device that knows where on the planet it is often with a few feet. Thats how devices calculate your fitness activiti es; where you run, how far you run, how fast you run, your heart rate, and other measurements. B ut it s not just fitness devices that have vulnerabiliti es, it s any electroni c device that is location aware. M ost location aw are devices record location data and allow user s to uploa d the location dat a to a remote site, such as an app on your phone or websit e, for further analysis. S ome devi ces are alway s connected and alway s sending dat a to a remote site. Sometime s you might not even be aw are of that. The vulnerability, you see, i s that some website owner s sell your location data, along wit h thousand s of others location data, t o third parties. And those third party vendor s might very well resell the dat a to y et other vendors. If your location dat a get s int o the hand s of a bad actor, you re vulnerable. With location data from a location aware device, someone can formulate a pretty accurate picture of your life patterns. Or a child s life patterns. Or a Soldier s life patterns. An adult s most frequently observed location will undoubtedly be home or a workplace, a child s most frequently observed location will likely be home and school. A Soldier s will likely be home and their duty assignment. Identifying the Soldier s workplace is particularly troubling when the Soldier is deployed and location data used by our adversaries could reveal where the Soldier is deployed. Under some circumstances, location data could reveal the paths of patrols, troop and equipment movements, and places the Soldier frequents. If the location is clandestine, the outcome of our adversaries having that information could be beyond devastating. The purpose of this flyer is not to tell you to stop using location aware devices. They have value. The purpose of this flyer is to raise awareness and help you understand the threats posed by location aware devices. You can decide if your use of the device is worth it. Where available, location based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd sourced Wi Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices approximate location. (Actual, unattributed Terms of Service) Where available, location based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd sourced Wi Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices approximate location.
