Official Nokia Fix For The ‘Curse Of Silence’ Bug

Official Nokia Fix For The 'Curse Of Silence' BugWould you believe it! Nokia has actually gone ahead and released an official fix for the ‘Curse Of Silence’ bug that F-Secure had brought to light. The fix is in a form of a .sis file that can be installed on the phone and simply executed once to ‘cure’ a phone that has been a victim of the so called exploit.

If you don’t remember/know, this phrase refers to the ability of a attacker to disable the messaging capabilities on Nokia’s S60 3rd Edition devices (both inital and FP1), by sending a special message. The chances of you being a victim of such an ‘attack’ are very remote and even if you end up getting caught with this, keep in mind that a quick fix awaits your command. Meanwhile Nokia is also working with carriers across the world to block such messages. Direct download for the application is here.

P.S. – You DO NOT need an anti virus for your S60 device. Be a little careful and you NEVER will.

  1. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
