    You know this isn't applicable to blackberrys since they need to pair with any device before it has access to any of its functions and on top of that you need to allow the device to connect after its even paired. "Send via bluetooth" and "receive via bluetooth" more security measures. Basically this is null and void for all blackberrys.

    Huh...and why was this removed from Digg? ...was it itself a hacker's cheap trick?

    Bluetooth is indeed a sometimes overlooked means of your PC contacting an STD (Serially Transmitted Disease ) from an Infected Neighbor of yours.

    But I suspect hacking a BlackBerry necessarily involves hacking the RIM servers as well.

    It's always fun seeing people who don't realize why the us government uses blackberry's so much or how closely they work with RIM's programmers to make sure they stay secure.

    Secure from the masses... Yes,
    Secure from a few... NO !

    Blackjacking is all the rage folks.
    Point > Click > Root !

    Actually, according to the info from defcon 2006, the blackberry isn't being hacked. It is still secure, in fact they count on the security of the bb to hide the data through RIM's own encryption methods. What is being hacked is the corporate network that the device is connected to through the BES.

    "What is being hacked is the corporate network that the device is connected to through the BES." < ===== This is even a bigger hacking issue.

    However you're leaving out trojans. And they don't need to be in the form of an email attachment. They can easily be installed perhaps in a game of Tic Tac Toe. Blacking is alive and well.

    This is a an awful name for it, maybe not the best choice of words.

    As for the trojans, if you're installing Tic Tac Toe, or any random applications on your device you're not the brightest bulb on the tree.

    The Blackberry development community is a smaller community and most of the developers are well known. If at anytime we find a trojan there will be accountability. This is nothing like the WM community.

    I believe you are right -- with a BB one cannot catch an infection through plain browsing or e-mailing; one has to install something, and installing something not well-known and documented marks one as not the sharpest knife in the kitchen

    Question: has there ever been a verified case of a Trojan on a BlackBerry?

    NOTE: THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO SCARE ANYONE!!!
    But we need to get real about things.

    [1] The term is called "Blackjacking".
    [2] Unfortunately, There are many folks who fit your description.
    [3] The community is small but the user base is the largest mobile community which is why it has become a target.

    BTW, I too agree, one should be held accountable for spreading trojans.

    Again, regarding BB security

    Secure from the masses... Yes,
    Secure from a few... NO !

    This is strictly wrong and irresponsible of you reddog187. There are plenty of white papers that have been written that address BB trojans. You are not given those folks ( ethical hacking community) credit and recognition. WRONG !!!
