BlackBerry spy software branded as virus


Trojan HorseSure there’s nothing especially friendly about listening in on your significant other’s affairs, but it hardly constitutes malevolent intent. Security firm F-Secure has branded spy application FlexiSpy as the first Trojan for BlackBerry, much to FlexiSpy’s ire. There have been previous demonstrations of the viral capabilities in BlackBerrys, but few individuals have gone so far as identify a particular program as a BlackBerry virus. We’re going to have to side with FlexiSpy on this one – sure the software’s underhanded, and maybe even a security threat, but it’s no Trojan.
