The other day we heard about a security flaw in Microsoft’s Windows Phone smartphones, that would let the device be rebooted when a certain text message was sent to it, and the SMS also disabled the messaging hub on your device.
Microsoft has now confirmed that they are working on a software update that will fix the SMS security bug, Greg Sullivan, Microsoft’s senior product manager for Windows Phone had the following to say about the bug.
“We are aware of the issue and our engineering teams are examining it now. Once we have more details, we will take appropriate action to help ensure customers are protected.”
There are no details as yet when the bug will be fixed, we presume Microsoft will release a software update to fix it, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
