About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

I don't remember this WAP Wednesday talk, but Job de Haas did presentations and demos of SMS crashing of popular phones at Black Hat and HAR in 2001. One of his presentations is at (there's only one page on the "SMS Phone crash demo".)

Along the years, there were also other -never publicised- issues crashing some phones (including bricking IIRC) on reception of malformed SMS PDUs.

The industry didn't seem that much concern then and apparently still isn't.
