Nokia mystified over criminal bid for old phones

The mystery why cybercriminals want a discontinued Nokia phone isn’t getting any clearer.

Hackers have been offering up to €25,000 (US$32,413) in undergrounds forums for Nokia 1100 phones made in the company’s former factory in Bochum, Germany. The phone can allegedly be hacked so as to facilitate illegal online banking transfers, according to the Dutch company Ultrascan Advanced Global Investigations.
