How to Hack Nokia Phones – Remote DDOS Attack using SMS

Yep,One can hack Nokia phones by just sending a SMS,seems devilish isn't it? Although this vulnerability was found more than an year ago, I recently tried it and found it working in many sets. The Nokia S60 hacked -  rdhacker.blogspot.comvulnerability dubbed as “Curse of Silence” affects all Nokia Symbian 60/Series 60 devices and allows for remote SMS/MMS Denial of Service.One can send a specially crafted sms to lockup/crash any Series 60 device.

What is Required ?

  • MSISDN of the target.
  • A Mobile phone service provider which allows sending of SMS messages (Airtel in my case)
  • (Almost) any Nokia phone (or some other means of sending SMS messages with TP-PID set to "Internet Electronic Mail" )

Risk Levels

Although the vulnerability is spread across many versions of S60 platform,the Risk level is quite high for (for S60 2.6 and 3.0 devices)as upon attack,the target will not be able to receive any SMS or MMS messages until the device is Factory Resetted and Medium for S60 2.8 and 3.1 devices as upon Ddos attack,the target will not be able to receive any SMS or MMS messages while the attack is ongoing. After that, only very limited message receiving is possible until the device is Factory Resetted.

 The Series 60 N Series, E Series and some more phones can Be hacked -

The Attack

One can send an email using an sms by setting the messages Protocol Identifier to "Internet Electronic Mail" and formatting the message like this:

<email-address><space><message body>

The simplest attack will be -


If such messages contain an <email-address> with more than 32 characters, S60 2.6, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.1 devices fail to display the message or give any indication on the user interface that such a message has been received. They do,however, signal to the SMS Career that they have received the message.Nokia Series 60 3.0 Prominent phones -

Devices running S60 2.6 or 3.0 will not be able to receive any other SMS message after that. The user interface does not give any indication of this situation. The only action to remedy this situation seems to be a Factory Reset of the device (by entering "*#7370#" ) or using a Vulcan Death Grip.  Nokia Series 60 3.1 Prominent phones -

Devices running S60 2.8 or 3.1 react a little different: They do not lock up until they received at least 11 SMS-email messages with an email address that is longer than 32 characters after that the device will not be able to receive any other SMS message and the phone will just display a warning that there is not enough memory to receive further messages and that data should be deleted first. This message is even displayed on an otherwise completely "empty" device.  Nokia Series 60 2.8 Prominent phones -

After switching the phone off and on again, it has limited capability for receiving SMS messages again: If it receives a SMS message that is split up into several parts it is only able to receive the first part and will display the "not enough memory" warning again. After powercycling the device again, it can then receive the second part. If there is a third part, it has to be powercycled again, and so on.

Also, an attacker now just needs to send one more "Curse Of Silence" message to lock the phone up again. By always sending yet another one as soon as the status report for delivery of the previous message is received, the attacker could completely prevent a target from receiving any other SMS/MMS messages.

Only Factory Resetting the device will restore its full message receiving capabilities. Note that, if a backup is made using Nokia PC-Suite *after* being attacked, the blocking messages are also backuped and will be sent to the device again when restoring the backup after the Factory Reset.

Detailed List of affected phones

Tested on several S60 2.6, 3.0 and 3.1 devices. Since the vulnerable component is a S60 base functionality, it seems safe to assume that all devices with these OS versions are affected. I short if you own one of these,you are rounded unless u have a firmware upgrade/fix release by Nokia which fixes this attack.

Nokia N900 Review

The market has been flurried by smartphones recently and Iphone stole the show by merging great looks with some really cool widgets and making it a must have. Losing its dominance over the Smartphone market,the Finnish mobile king Nokia tends to fight back by releasing N900.Earlier Nokia Smartphone came with home grown Symbian OS but this time Nokia has experimented by packing N900 with the stunning Linux distribution Maemo 5 which itself is a slimmed down version of Debian Linux and have added a host of top-end features, including a sizeable 3.5in touch screen, slide-out Qwerty keyboard, 5Mp camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Wi-Fi , A-GPS, quad-band and much more besides…
 Nokia N900
N900 is a beauty to behold and is chiseled to perfection (keeping in mind the fact that I tend to get sentimental everytime I see a cool gadget) and sports a sleek screen,black minimalistic looks and feels very pocketful.The keypad is quite tactile and responsive despite the small keys it sports.
Maemo 5 looks quite similar to its Symbian predecessor and Nokia has made a promising move by moving on to open source Linux platform (3 cheers to Nokia).The Linux OS is powered by fast ARM Cortex A8 processor and Open GL ES 2.0 graphics and performs well by providing additional usability with a great user interface.
N900 Maemo 5 Interface
Frequent tasks like SMSing and Emailing is easy on N900 and it also supports Facebook widgets and sports a browser based on Firefox which is a good thing as it can handle multiple pages at once and updates them in real time.The camera takes surprisingly good pics owning to its Carl Zeiss optical lens and while it doesn't have a huge arrange of settings, it does offer macro, action and portrait modes, plus a dual LED flash, though there's no smile detection, timer or multi-shot options.
Nokia N900 front
Watching videos is a delight on N900,the 800X480 screen vivdly displays videos in amazing quality.Its supports major video formats and has a TV out option too.The Music player of  N900 is attractive and the phone itself is bundled with above average earphones. There is a basic FM which doesnt supports autotune. Also the phone supports onboard 32 GB memory and supports 16 GB external MicroSD card (just in case you are not satisfied by putting your entire audio collection on it). Call quality is good but the battery is a concern since owing its use of multimedia apps,it barely lasted a day on heavy use.
N900 is bundled with above average earphones
Final Verdict
Nokia N900 is a definitive phone if you have enough moolah to buy one.The Linux OS is solid,the interface intuitive at the end of the day,its a Nokia – the second name of quality (correct me if its wrong). Its a joy to use,a beauty to behold and the ultimate phone to flaunt to your friends.Nothing more..Nothing less.
Price in India – 650 $ , 500 EURO ,INR 34000/- approx

IIS service vulnerability leaves users to attack

Another critical vulnerability have been found in the Microsoft IIS web service which allows malicious users to upload IIS service vulnerability leaves users to attackmalicious files by appending innocent filename extensions like “jpg” to malicious files. The problem arises from by the way Microsoft IIS parses file names with colons or semicolons in them which can allow attackers to bypass filters and potentially trick server into running a malware.

Soroush Dalili,the security researcher who found the flaw commented “ Impact of this vulnerability is absolutely high as an attacker can bypass file extension protections by using a semicolon after an executable extension such as '.asp,' '.cer,' '.asa' and so on," he continued "Many web applications are vulnerable against file uploading attacks because of this weakness of IIS."

Secunia,a Danish computer security service provider,confirmed the bug on a machine running a fully patched version of Windows 2003 R2 SP2 with Microsoft IIS version 6.

A Microsoft spokeswoman said company researchers are investigating the report. They are not aware of attacks targeting the reported vulnerability, she said.

In the mean time I messed with my new cellphone ( A Nokia 3120 classic ),played Halo and decided to pursue RHCE and hanged out with girls :)
