Video: Nokia S60 handsets blocked by Curse of Silence bug

The is a bug doing the rounds that gives Nokia S60 devices the “Curse of Silence,” whereby a hacker sends the Nokia S60 handset a unique SMS message containing a 32 character email address.

When the target Nokia S60 handset receives the SMS message it rejects all incoming text messages and emails, and the only way to fix the rejection is a hard reset of the Nokia S60 device.

So, anyone using a Nokia S60 mobile phone had better make sure they regularly backup their handset because you never know if you’ll receive the “Curse of Silence.” We have a video below showing the “Curse of Silence” at work.
