Sony Ericsson phones open to 'snarf' attack

Since many people in these forums own Sony Ericsson phones I thought this article might be of interest/value:

Very interesting... thanks for the heads-up. I checked my T68i software version and it's R8A015, so I guess that means mine's okay...

I guess that's the big danger in OS-like standard interfaces for phones, such as Symbian....Just think, in 30 years, we'll have a cure for HIV and the common cold, but your refrigerator, telephone and car will be susceptible to computer virii.

Kinda strange that the attached article mentions (for Nokia phones) the 63xx and 7650 but not the 3650. Anyway, at least the fix is pretty simple.

I wonder if iSync is susceptible to the same on BT-enabled Macs that are discoverable???

i doubt isync would be in danger, its different to hack a phone from a full fledged OS.
