Denial-of-service attack possible on Nokia Series 60 smartphones
- Significant threat.
- Back up your phone daily. If the DOS attack is successful, recovery requires a total reset which means you lose everything in phone memory.
- If strange messages start appearing with the @ symbol in them, shut off your phone or go into airline mode (no cellular reception). Backup to memory card, delete the strange messages and then backup to memory card again.
- Stay tuned for news of a patch from Symbian.
