LTE modem exploitation gives attackers online access

Yesterday at DEF CON 23 this talk happened:

Scared Poopless – LTE and *your* laptop
Mickey Shkatov, Jesse Michael
“With today’s advancement in connectivity and internet access using 3G and LTE modems it seems we all can have a device that’s always internet capable, including our laptops, tablets, 2 in 1’s ultrabook. It becomes easier to be online without using your WiFi at all.  In our talk we will demonstrate and discuss the exploitation of an internal LTE modem from Huawei which can be found in a number of devices including laptops by HP.”
