Another reason not to buy a RAZR

As observed by Dan, The Register reports a bug in the Motorola RAZR:

A bug in Motorola’s RAZR firmware could allow a malformed JPG file sent over MMS to overflow the stack, theoretically making it able to execute arbitrary code.

… and do what, precisely? 😉

So you can execute arbitrary code and, I dunno, maybe do a naughty calculation. Like spell out BOOBLESS on the display (80087355)?

Or take you to a particularly naughty mobile web site that doesn’t display properly at all? Next. Dinny worry.

That's stupid and for sure it's not a reason for not buying a RAZR. It's only reason for upgrading a firmware on RAZR, which is an easy thing to do.
