Killer SMS Stalks Cell Phones In Europe
I’ll admit that this article is painfully short on details, but it claims that a simple text message can completely freeze certain Siemens phones in Europe. All you have to do is send the phone a one-word message, including one of the languages listed in its language menu with an asterisk in front of it and surrounded by quotes. So, sending “*English” to one of these phones could fry it completely. That sounds like a pretty big bug.
