Airscanner Reports Possible Pocket IE Attack Overview

There are several weaknesses in Pocket IE that can be used to trick end users into submitting local and/or sensitive data, such as usernames and passwords. The potential for exploiting these vulnerabilities are restricted only by an attacker’s imagination. However, Pocket IE is not as powerful as its big brother, and as such, an attacker is limited in what techniques she can use to launch the attack. For example, Pocket IE has no support for the IFrame tag, which is extremely useful in XSS and browser-based attacks. In addition, Pocket IE does not support every JavaScript command commonly used by attackers. The final example presented below is an attempt to combine these individual flaws into one attack and is only meant to serve as a proof of concept.
Flaw 1: Unicode URL Obsfucation
Flaw 3: <div> Tag XSS
Flaw 2: Local File Access
This has been reported to Microsoft (Source: Seth Fogie, AirScanner)

DDH Software Announces the Release of HanDBase Online Runtime Builder for Windows Desktops

Simple-to-use mobile application builder now adds desktop option, enabling developers to easily build custom applications for Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and Windows Desktops

DDH Software, developers of the award-winning HanDBase relational database program for mobile devices, has just released HanDBase Online Runtime Builder. The new database development tool enables users to create freestanding Windows Desktop PC companions for handheld runtime solutions.

For nearly three years, DDH Software has been selling its runtime builder solution for Palm OS devices. Early last year, the company added support for Windows Mobile / Pocket PC applications as well. With the HanDBase Runtime Builder, thousands of customers have discovered how easy it is to design freestanding relational database runtime applications. Without having to learn any programming languages, users can create stand-alone applications based on the HanDBase databases they design.

"We've watched with excitement as users have created a myriad of stand-alone applications with the HanDBase runtime designer,” said David Haupert, president of DDH Software, Inc. “Some have created a product that they now sell to their customers, while others have used it to distribute a unique branded database application to their employees and students.”

Giving users a turnkey custom-branded solution is a high priority for many of DDH Software’s clients, and now they are able to create database solutions for both major handheld platforms—complete with a desktop companion for making changes to data on the desktop.

The desktop companion offers full support for editing databases, filtering, searching, and browsing, as well as flexible features for importing and exporting data to other file formats. Additionally, customers can interface with DDH Software's many flexible synchronization conduits to provide bi-directional data synchronization between handheld and desktop, and a myriad of desktop database management systems. These additional conduits are available in individual and unlimited licensing arrangements and are sold separately.
The online Runtime Builder site was designed to be fast and easy to use, and many applications can be developed in minutes. Customers interested in trying the solution before purchasing can go online and build a one-day evaluation version of any application with all features available to them.

Licensing for either the Windows Mobile or Palm OS version of HanDBase Online Runtime Builder is US$599.99, which includes unlimited, royalty-free distribution of applications created using the program. Windows Desktop solutions can be created for an additional US $299.00. For those who aim to create application suites to run on Windows desktops and Palm OS and Windows Mobile handheld platforms, the cost is US$999 when purchased at the same time. (Source: Press Release)

On2 Technologies Announces Ports To Pocket PC and MS Smartphone

On2 Technologies, Inc., The Duck Corporation, today announced that it has ported its VP6.2 video decoder software and Truecast Player to Windows mobile-based Pocket PC and Smartphone devices.

The company said its ability of showing high-quality video at very low data rates well under 100 kbps on these mobile devices is critical to pursuing the handheld PC and cellphone markets. The company also said that it has begun demonstrating VP6.2 on these devices to both existing and potential customers.

"The newer VPx codecs, which now include VP7, will allow commercially viable video to play on devices that have extremely inexpensive processors, limited memory and battery capacity," said Eric Ameres, On2's Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. "Using On2's technology, programming can be moved to these platforms at a quality level that we believe makes them good targets for the content industry," he added. (Source: Press Release)

PhatWare Announces Upgrades to PhatPad - Award-Winning Notes Organizing Software for Windows Mobile PDAs

PhatPad 2.1 Offers Several New Features Including Animation Mode; Vertical and Horizontal Auto Scrolling; and Improved Overall Functionality

PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the upgrade to its award-winning notes organizer for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs, Tablet and Desktop PCs. The application turns any Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC or Tablet PC into the ultimate notepad. The user can draw pictures, jot text notes, or combine text, drawings and pictures to increase their personal and professional productivity.

PhatPad 2.1 features the Animation Mode that allows users to open handwritten notes and pictures as an animation clip. The program will automatically “flip” through pages of notes at a specified speed, providing the user with a quick preview of the “live” notes. For example, a user can draw a map of street directions, adding new streets on each page of notes and have the ability to view them in animation for quick reference.

“The new version of PhatPad brings greater functionality to an already award-winning product,” said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare Corporation. “The new Animation Mode gives users the convenience to quickly preview their notes, bringing increased efficiency to notes organizing.”

Additional features of PhatPad 2.1 include improved shape recognition that now supports arrows; customizable vertical and horizontal auto scrolling; a new command to duplicate a note’s pages; and the ability to scroll the page with the stylus.

“PhatPad 2.1 exemplifies PhatWare’s continuing commitment to deliver a very unique and compelling productivity application to users of Windows Mobile-based devices,” said Julie Wymetalek, manager of the Mobility Partner Advisory Council at Microsoft Corp. “New features, such as Animation Mode, demonstrate the power of Windows Mobile and its ability to provide a great platform that industry partners can continue to build upon.”

PhatPad can be used with CalliGrapher and/or PenOffice to convert handwritten notes to the digital text. CalliGrapher and PenOffice handwriting recognition products are sold separately but are also available as PhatPad software bundles at a discounted rate.

PhatPad 2.1 is priced at $29.95 and is available for purchase on PhatWare’s Web site, www.phatware.com, and from PhatWare’s authorized resellers. A free upgrade is offered to registered users of PhatPad 2.0. Registered users of older versions of PhatPad can purchase the product for $14.95.
