Description of vulnerability:
There is a local and remote vulnerability and
Siemens *35 and *45 series phones.
A message of the form "%String", where String is on of the
languages from the phone language selection menu, will
completely disable *35 series phones and result
in a 2 minute read delay on *45 series phones. Note that
the first letter of language should be capitalized and
the quotation marks should be present in the message.
The phone will try to read the message and then after 2 minutes
return to the main menu. This happens every time the message is sent.
After 10-15 messages the battery (NiMH) gets empty.
There is a local vulnerability of the same kind. A message of the
form "%some_word", where some_word is any lower case letter
sequence will result in the same effects described above.
We send on "phone - victim" the message:
"%Polski" "%Magyar" "%English" "%Deutsch"
