Default RIM Blackberry buffer overflow, DoS, data loss

Please Login to Remove!

Found this over at Engadget.


Cause and Effect:
Insufficient data validation for incoming calendar data makes possible
to cause buffer overflow condition leading to stack corruption. As a result,
it is possible to reboot the device (all stored messages will be lost since
RAM storage will be reinitialized). It is also possible to execute code
embedded by the attacker.
