    Exclamation Blackberry Browser Security Issue Discovered in Current OS's

    Looks like Verizon is going to have to update their OS sooner than they might have wanted to.

    Thanks to CX for the article.

    Basically the article says that if you are on: BlackBerry Device Software v4.7.0.x then you should upgrade to v4.7.0.179 or later

    Hmm, that doesn't exist right now.

    So what does Verizon do? Update to a fail 5.0, or go to a > v4.7.0.179????

    BTW, this is a pretty decent security flaw in the browser which makes it easier for malicious parties to execute "phishing" attacks on unsuspecting smartphone users.
