Siemens M Series SMS DoS Vulnerability

It has been reported that some Siemens mobile phones are unable to sufficiently handle certain SMS message content.

If a maliciously formed SMS message contains certain characters, the mobile phone firmware will behave in an unstable manner. Exploitation of this issue may result in a target phone no longer functioning.

Earlier Siemens mobile phone products may also be affected by this vulnerability.

** The vendor has stated that Siemens A50 mobile phones, as delivered to consumers, are not vulnerable to this issue.
