This threat works through a mobile phone which is near a computer. The electro magnetic waves emanated by the phone and the computer during their regular operations establish a contact with which a malware is first introduced into the computer and then the computer transmits the data through FM frequency to the mobile and later sent through the mobile network to the hacker.

This means that no mobile phones can be allowed near a sensitive computer if this threat need to be eliminated.
