Trend Micro has again discovered flaws related to Windows Mobile. Both of the newly found vulnerabilities are flaws in applications that ship by default with Microsoft’s mobile device OS.
One of the said applications is Pictures and Videos, which causes a mobile device to hang for 10-15 minutes when it tries to process a malformed JPEG file. The other flaw is found in Windows Mobile’s Internet Explorer(IE), which when exploited terminates IE and causes the affected mobile device to be unstable.
Both vulnerabilities affect devices running Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 2003/2003SE for Smartphones and PocketPC. As of this writing, Microsoft has already been informed of these flaws but no patches are available as of yet.
