We previously covered the "Windows Phone SMS bug" that would disable the messaging hub on the victim's handset, which was discovered (and reported) by Khaled Salameh. Just two days after the bug was made public by WinRumors, we learnt that Microsoft was looking into the issue. Today we have further news surrounding the bug, Salameh has been contacted by the Microsoft Security Team and informed that they've located the root cause and a fix is currently being tested.
While it's highly unlikely to affect users, it's good to know Microsoft is on top of potential security issues. Now we just need the disappearing keyboard to be looked at. We're getting there.
