    There was a bit of a banking scandal on Bay Street, in which some employees were hired away from the bank and then they were plied for private bank information.

    The bank was successful in submitting BlackBerry PIN messages, which all pass through servers at some point in the peer-to-peer journey, as evidence.

    Highlight of an article:

    "Standard BlackBerry email goes through a company's computer system, or enterprise server, and can be logged and archived by the system just like any other e-mail message. However, BlackBerrys come equipped with a personal identification number (PIN). PIN messaging is common in financial circles and workgroups. Common belief has held that messages sent from one BlackBerry to another using these PIN numbers, rather than using normal e-mail addresses, will bypass a company's computers, thus making these communications completely private since the messages are being sent directly from one device to another.

    Because it is believed these messages cannot be monitored or logged by the BlackBerry enterprise*server, many people use the feature to exchange private or sensitive information. The reality is that this is not the case as companies can access all communication sent and received through a company-issued BlackBerry.

    In fact, there is software available that can capture such PIN-to-PIN communications, and it is being increasingly used by financial services firms and government agencies to log BlackBerry communication. Furthermore, messages relayed in this manner can then be subpoenaed in court, as has happened in the CIBC case."

    And don't think that merely BIS service will release you! All your email and PINs at some point go through a server in Waterloo.
