All the noise is about the iPhone, but the same vulnerability exists on Windows Mobile and Palm Pre. It allows a PC to take over the device and use it for instance as a spambot. Not pretty. Some of the upset is with Apple not committing to get it fixed quickly, or staying mum about the whole thing. What is more interesting is the white paper on the SMS hole that the researchers released at Black Hat and the technical background. Here you go!

Also we announced a new version of our CWSandbox and a new Threat Track datafeed at Black Hat. If you are a Security Researcher and need to know what kind of (perhaps targeted) malware is trying to penetrate your organization, you need these tools. See the announcement in the third party section, as our sandbox is a powerful automated malware analysis tool. Check here:
