Last time we checked on these cyber criminals and their planning session, they were outlining an attack on cryptocurrency. Now they’ve shifted gears and are looking at the possibility of capturing some low-hanging fruit using new wireless communication tools.

They can’t wait to use easily accessible SDRs to steal network credentials at the local mall, or hit up the parking lot to spoof GPS signal and steal the car of their dreams. All they need to do is watch some how-to videos from the more than 3 million hacking tutorials available on YouTube.
