Blackberry Security

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Ogdan Ücgür, Aug 13, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know something about the security of Blackberry Client Devices
    (the phone / organiser handhelds)?

    I found information about security of the server side. But this is not what
    I am looking for.

    Specifically: Does the built-in Webbrowser have any known vulnerabilities or
    does anyone know if the browser can be exploited?

    Is the built-in e-mail client vulnerable? Does anyone know of security
    threats if the blackberry mail client is used?

    Thanks and regards!

  2. Sure. Blackberry uses S/MIME and through an attachable "sled" can sign/encrypt via a Smart
    Card, even via DoD CAC.

    I know of no vulnerabilities in the handheld units.
