Handspring Visor/PalmOS 3.5h subject to DoS



11th Jan 2002 [SBWID-4991]
COMMAND

	Handspring Visor is subject to DoS

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

	PALM OS 3.5h / Handspring Visor With Xircom  Wireless  Ethernet  Adapter
	Card

PROBLEM

	Jason Lutz posted :
	

	The handspring Visor seems to have problems dealing with an nmap scan
	

	Exploit:
	 

	bash-2.04# nmap <ip address of visor> 

	

	This causes a Fatal Exception on the palm device.
	

	Roger H. Goun added : It\'s the TCP connect() scan type that  knocks  it
	over. It seems to survive SYN, FIN, and UDP scans.
	

	

	

SOLUTION

	Upgrade ??
