I would like to contribute to the list a paper i just had published that discusses the vulnerabilities of current virus detectors for pocket pc's, it is scary to think that such simplistic detectors are the current state of the art for such powerfull devices, it leads one to think that the lessons of the past have not been learned, feedback on the paper is appreciated and welcomed, i hope it helps those interested in this area of research feel free to contact me. I should be presenting the paper at the workshop on software security assesment tools, tactics and metrics in long beach california in early november in conjunction with the automated software engineering conference. the paper can be downloaded at

Pointers to begin with :

- Microsoft Embedded Visual C++, with on-target debugging :

- Phrack #63 "Hacking Windows CE"

- And the upcoming IDA Pro 4.9 with Windows CE on-target debugging :
