Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2008-5825

Original release date: 01/02/2009
Last revised: 03/18/2009


The SmartPoster implementation on the Nokia 6131 Near Field Communication (NFC) phone with 05.12 firmware does not properly display the URI record when the Title record contains a certain combination of space, CR (aka \r), and . (dot) characters, which allows remote attackers to trick a user into loading an arbitrary URI via a crafted NDEF tag, as demonstrated by (1) an http: URI for a malicious web site, (2) a tel: URI for a premium-rate telephone number, and (3) an sms: URI that triggers purchase of a ringtone.


CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 2.6 LOW
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 4.9
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable - Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism
Access Complexity: High
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized modification
