our <a href="https://neo900.org/news/paypal-resumes-neo900-sources-again">last
communication</a> we noted that <q><strong>Neo900 is the only
phone that provides a hardware protection from remote activation
- of the baseband chip</strong></q>. Therefore this vulnerability
- that potentially plagues all commercial phones on the planet,
- won't affect Neo900.</p>
+ of the baseband chip</strong></q>.</p>
+
+ <p>In fact, the GTA0x design of Neo 1973 and Neo FreeRunner, that
+ Neo900 builds upon, contains two unique features:
+ <ul>
+ <li>the modem is detached from the power source, unlike other
+ smartphones, so that the modem has to be authorized by
+ the <abbr>CPU</abbr> before it can perform its tasks.</li>
+ <li>the modem and the CPU <strong>do not share RAM</strong>,
+ which prevents a whole range of attack vectors where a rogue
+ baseband chip, either by design, by "lawful" or illegal
+ action, could take control of memory segments pertaining to
+ other subsystems and inject malicious code.</li>
+ </ul>
+ Thanks to this design, the <abbr>CPU</abbr> has the capacity to monitor:
+ <ul>
+ <li>the modem access to power and its consumption</li>
+ <li>the activity of the modem antenna</li>
+ <li>the activation of the
+ <abbr title="Global Positioning System">GPS</abbr>
+ part of the modem</li>
+ <li>other interfaces (e.g., digital
+ <abbr title="Pulse-Code Modulation">PCM</abbr> audio</li>
+ </ul>
+ </p>
+
+ <p>Therefore this vulnerability that potentially plagues all
+ commercial phones on the planet, won't affect Neo900.</p>
<p>Our exclusive Neo900 design is more valuable than ever!</p>
