Nextgov: Researcher Reveals GPS Vulnerabilities, October 2010

“GPS timing signals that control the base stations in some cellular networks and other gadgets the size of small refrigerators that power the smart electric grid can fall prey to sophisticated spoofing attacks, according to a University of Texas researcher. Todd Humphreys, an assistant professor at the University of Texas Radionavigation Laboratory, said he successfully spoofed a type of laboratory time reference receiver of the code division multiple access network technology Sprint and Verizon use that relies on GPS time—with a transmitter he built for about $1,000.”
