Life on the planet has already switched to digital format: electronic documents, tickets, wallets, online photo base. All this significantly improves the work, simplifies tasks, saves our time. At the same moment, cyberspace has become a new field for criminals. Modern technologies and hardware and software systems allow attacks on mobile subscribers.
