Palm OS Treo Smartphone Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

Treo Smartphones running the Palm OS are prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because they fail to handle excessive amounts of specially crafted ICMP requests.

Attackers can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service conditions on affected devices.

NOTE: This issue can be exploited only on Smartphones connected to data networks that allow inbound ICMP traffic.

Palm Treo 650 and 700p Smartphones are vulnerable. Treo 680 Smartphones may also be affected, but this has not been confirmed.
