BES Resource Kit 4.1 SP 6 released

Comments

BlackBerry Logo Three new tools, the BlackBerry Synchronization Request Tool, the BlackBerry Time Zone Synchronization Tool, and the BlackBerry System Requirements Tool have been included in the latest BES Resource Kit. The BlackBerry User Administration Tool has only had its maximum number of moveable users cut down to 1,000, so no new features there. This release marks “the quickest turnaround for a BRK release following the BES release”, possibly showing that RIM is stepping up their software production. The last month or so has been pretty busy, what with CDKs, DMs, and OSes coming out at pretty regular intervals. One can only hope that it keeps up, eh?

BES 4.1 Service Pack 6 released

Comments

BlackBerry LogoAdmins rejoice! The latest patch for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is available for download. The device-side software made it out yesterday, and BIS was upgraded a couple of weeks ago, so the circle of upgrading is all completed. Big changes in this service pack include rich content e-mail, support for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Lotus Sametime 8.0, and control RIM value-added applications. On top of that, reconciling permanent message deletion has been improved, and there are also some changes to the BlackBerry Configuration Database schema, the naming of collaboration clients, Mobile Data System conventions and related software. As for that PDF vulnerability, this patch should take care of everything A-O-K. Go ahead and download BES 4.1.6 here, or scope out the update notes here.

PDF security warning for Unite! and BES

Comments

Snidely Whiplash as a PDFA security warning has been placed for BES 4.1 Service Pack 3 (4.1.3) through 4.1 Service Pack 5 (4.1.5) and BlackBerry Unite! earlier than 1.0 Service Pack 1 (1.0.1) bundle 36. The problem involves distilling PDF files in e-mail attachments on the server. Should a crafty hacker cook something up, the file could activate some code on the server once it was sent through the pipes tubes. Admins should make sure their software is as current as possible and disable PDF attachments until the issue is resolved. You can find out more about the BlackBerry Unite! vulnerability here and the BES vulnerability here.
