Title: Apple iPhone Bluetooth Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability

Severity: HIGH


Apple iPhone is a mobile phone.

A remote code-execution vulnerability affects the iPhone Bluetooth server because it fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied data in specially crafted Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) packets.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code on iPhones that have Bluetooth enabled. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

Versions prior to iPhone 1.1.1 are vulnerable.

NOTE: This issue was initially disclosed along with several other issues in BID 25834 (Apple iPhone 1.1.1 Update Multiple Security Vulnerabilities). Each issue has been assigned its own BID to better document the details.

Affected Products:

  • Apple iPhone
  • Apple iPhone 1
  • Apple iPhone 1.0.1
