I was recording my network during the time of the mass alert text message. What I found is my current gps location, contacts list and phone operating system version and other device information was sent to a server with insecure plain text protocol.


This was a proof of concept alert(hello world) test. Direct code injection on a mass scale.


Ill post my findings on github.

I for some reason did not get the text message.

I was traveling that day but I assume that if it was sent while my phone was in airplane mode, it would been pushed through when my radios were turned off.

While I do have Amber Alerts turned off, I do have government warning turned on.

If I had been more thoughful, I should have looked into my DNS log to see if Adblock blocked it.
