B.C. criminals using BlackBerrys

CriminalAccording to a recent RCMP threat assessment report, BlackBerrys are helping organized crime get a bit more organized. The increasing affordability of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and devices themselves is making BlackBerry a choice purchase for criminals in British Columbia. The enterprise-level security makes it difficult for law enforcement officials to crack information on the devices, as well as plant wiretaps.

“Every message that is sent via a BlackBerry is broken up into 2Kb [kilobyte] packets of information, each of which is given a 256-bit key by the BlackBerry server,” said [Scott Totzke, RIM's vice-president of global security]. “That means to release the contents of a 10Kb e-mail, a person would have to crack five separate keys, and each one would take about as long as it would for the sun to burn out — billion of years.”

What do you guys think, are BlackBerry communications getting too secure for their own good?
