    I too have been worried about this also... I'm curious to know if RIM will be releasing any type of Virus protection also.

    I'm willing to bet that any viruses on Facebook will target Windows machines. Much bigger (and much easier) target. I'm not sure if any real world viruses exist that will infect BlackBerry devices themselves.

    Blackberry doesn't run .exe files as far as I know. The viruses will be aimed at the biggest target, actual computers.
