In this work, we show two attacks on cellular data accounting systems where a user is either overcharged with spurious TCP retransmission or uses the service for free via TCP tunneling. We propose Abacus, an accurate accounting system that detects TCP tunneling attacks even in the 10 Gbps networks.
