The mobile device may be targeted for exploitation through its interface to cellular networks or other radio interfaces.
A message sent over a radio interface (typically cellular, but potentially Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi or other) to the mobile device could exploit a vulnerability in code running on the device.
An SMS message could contain content designed to exploit vulnerabilities in the SMS parser on the receiving device. An SMS message could also contain a link to a web site containing malicious content designed to exploit the device web browser. Vulnerable SIM cards may be remotely exploited and reprogrammed via SMS messages.
