    Is not just with a single app install but with a single permissions modification, yet with the spyware installed via an app, if the permission are correctly set and the app is has not been given trusted status you are safe.
    What most people need to do is read and learn what the bb terminology means, in example what giving trusted status to an app means is unknown for most blackberry users.

    Exactly! But I find this very difficult myself. Is there any good reading or advice about bb app permission terminology you could recommend?

    I've been wondering about security on the bb, especially since it is a mini computer and anything that has capability to surf the net of send and recieve stuff is surely, more than likely able to be hacked into...ugh, they will never stop will they, but I'm sure this will get some attention at RIM to start configuring new high tech security! It's so impossible to simply store stuff on paper anymore, you're so much more likely to lose it that way and besides it will still be able to be stolen just as your wallet is..oh, well, just have to start storing in my head as with the hundreds of passwords I use for every site I am subscribed to, it's a wonder how my brain can handle all those passwords...aye, yi, yi!!

    Ok, please tell me a few of your PWs, so I will store them for you

    You're absolutely right imho - a "computerized device", the net, and again all the idiots just having to hack and to destroy...

    Not those, showing that it can be done, but those really exploiting it...
