LocationSmart is security-dumb. Cell carriers are guilty too
Another data broker is under fire for sloppy security and poor privacy. This time, it’s a company called +LocationSmart, which sells your real-time position.

Yes, you heard me right. And accurate to a city block or two, too.

There are legit reasons to have such data—E911 and roadside rescue, for example. But a researcher discovered he could access anyone’s location without a shred of authentication.

But how does LocationSmart get your coordinates in the first place? Why, your wireless carrier sells it to them, silly—with or without your consent. In this week’s #SecurityBlogwatch at #TechBeacon, +Richi Jennings triangulates the story.
