Title: Nokia 7610, 3210 Denial of Service in OBEX.
Severity: Low
Affected: tested in nokia 7610 and nokia 3210 (maybe others symbian
phones).
Problem type: remote

Details:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They are some flaw in the OBEX implementation in nokia 7610 (V4.0.437
15-09-04 RH51), and others, that disable this service if you send
archive with name ":" or "\". 

----
 Quote of IROBEX12.pdf  Pag:40, section 4.3 -- (OBEX specification)

"Pushing objects into the inbox Objects are pushed into the inbox by using 
the PUT command with a Name header. The string in the Name header 
should not contain any path characters such as ‘:’, ‘/’ or ‘\’. Objects with
improperly formed names should be rejected."
----

The device ask for PIN if you are not paired or ask if you want accept a
connection of the remote box, you need ACCEPT. It have low risk ,
becouse dont work if you dont accept the incoming connection.

If connection is established, the file is sended and they arent "New
message arrived" message, like when you send correct archive. Its ok,
the  filename is dropped.

The problem is the OBEX service dont work anymore after this, if you
tried to send other file or from some vcard from other device, you cant
connect to the remote OBEX service again.
