Formal SMS group sending is sent through the SMS gateway channel provided by the three major operators, which will not cause any bad influence on people, while illegal SMS group sending is usually sent through pseudo base stations.
The so-called pseudo base station is an illegal radio communication device that uses GSM one-way authentication defects. It is mainly composed of a host computer and a laptop computer. It can search for GSM mobile phone information within a certain radius centered on it, and use others arbitrarily The mobile phone number forcibly sends spam messages such as fraud and sales promotion to the user’s mobile phone, usually placed in a car or a relatively hidden place.
