RIM issues security patch alongside Certicom buyout

Comments

RIM has issued a security patch for the BlackBerry. The update applies to the Application Web Loader and is related to Microsoft’s recent security updates to Internet Explorer 7. Apparently, the ActiveX component is vulnerable to a memory overflow error which, if exploited, could allow an attacker to remotely execute code on a targeted system. This patch has come in conjunction with the Certicom buyout and rounds out their security efforts quite nicely. Thanks RIM for making our BlackBerrys that much safer.

    Safer?

    Not using ActiveX would be safer, not to mention better for non-Windows/non-IE users.

    Once they’re done with that, BES 5/Domino on Linux please!
