Blackberry vulnerability to be released soon



Between the Lines is warning that Blackberry Enterprise servers ought to be placed in the DMZ (if not already.) There is word that a critical vulnerability will be announced on August 14th. (And if we already know that’s coming then SOMEONE knows what that vulnerability is.) It basically uses software on the Blackberry (which could be received as an email attachment) to tunnel through to the Blackberry server and have remote access to the network. There are some suggestions from Research in Motion, but they may not be fully effective.
