Windows Mobile flaws could crash phones 

CNET is reporting ” A security firm has found a pair of security bugs in Microsoft’s Windows Mobile which, if exploited, could crash phones and other devices running the software. The vulnerabilities lie in Windows Mobile Internet Explorer and Windows Mobile Pictures and Video.The newest problem allows an attacker to hijack systems running Word 2003, Symantec said in an alert Tuesday. The company has advised people to make sure their security software is up to date and urges caution when opening Word documents. ”

Should be interesting to see how many other bugs this one makes.Still makes me wonder just how vunerable mobile surfers are while roaming the web from thier mobile devices if thier device is not updated with the newest software patches.I beleive many people do not download updates becasue of the air time it takes to recieve them.
