Description:   A vulnerability was reported in the Blackberry Attachment Service on the Blackberry Enterprise Server. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions. A remote user may be able to execute arbitrary code.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) file that, when viewed by the target user on a Blackberry device, will trigger a heap overflow on the Blackberry Attachment Service and cuase the service to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2005-2341]. The Attachment Service will restart immediately or after a period of time.

As a result, a user may not be able to view attachments. No other Blackberry services are affected.

It may be possible to cause arbitrary code to be executed.
