Gemalto: Our SIM Cards Are Secure Despite Alleged Hack

I feel much better knowing that a company that didn't even know it was compromised (until it was in the news) is investigating itself.

A report released Thursday by online publication The Intercept claims that the US National Security Agency and the UK's Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, hacked into Gemalto's internal network and stole the encryption keys used to secure the company's SIM cards. The Amsterdam-based company said last week it would fully investigate the claim.
