MIDP’s and MIDlets put tens of millions Nokia S40 phones in danger
Polish security researcher Adam Gowdiak is the only person in the world (we really hope he is!) who knows the details of the recent J2ME vulnerabilities affecting to Nokia mobile phones.
The research material includes information about
reliable MIDP 2.0 privilege elevation technique for Nokia Series 40 devices
Nokia specific exploitation technique leading to the remote and persistent deployment of a backdoor shell application into the target Nokia Series 40 phone
Mr. Gowdiak has tested 7 Nokia Series 40 models.
Needless to say that this information in the hands of bad guys is dangerous.
