Windows Mobile Odyssey WEP Key Exposure

Airscanner discovered a serious flaw in the way the Windows Mobile Odyssey client manages the WEP key information.  The Oddessy client included with the Dell X50 stores the WEP keys as plaintext in the registry.

This could be a serious problem if a PDA is lost or borrowed. Since this information is stored as plaintext, anyone could read it and gain access to the WEP protected network.

Dell was informed 11/10/2004, but did not respond.
