Would 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.
