    Well.. It's really just the internet that allows hackers to work their ways. Without the internet, every piece of hardware would be safe if never got into the wrong hands - which now a days is easy and hard (depending on you're attention span....)

    A lot of my highly important information I keep on a small yet handy PDA and I NEVER connect it via WiFi. That way its safe and mine and no one will get it, and it isn't paper..

    How would one go about changing the "trusted" status of all the apps that they installed? I granted those permissions when prompted thinking I had to do that to have an app work correctly on my BB. Is that not the case?
    I do have things on my BB that I wouldn't want in the wrong hands.

    I just read that whole Veracodes thing and I have NO IDEA what it is saying. Anyone want to translate? I can't even tell if it is saying there is a solution.

    To change the trust settings go here:

    Options -> Advanced Options -> Applications -> Click your BB Button -> Edit Permissions.

    This is on a BB WE though, so it isn't the 5.0 OS.

    What the post is saying is that there is now spyware that can be developed to send out your contacts or saved files etc. But what everyone else is saying is that if the permissions are set correctly, then people won't have to worry about it.

    That doesn't work on the Storm, Shimmy. I have to go into each app and edit the permissions. My options are:
    Connections:Allow/Custom/Deny
    Interactions:Allow/Custom/Deny
    User Data: Allow/Deny
    What should they be set to in each? And if I change them does it interfere with that app working correctly?

    I'm sorry.. The steps are supposed to be:

    Options -> Advanced Options -> Applications -> Choose the app -> Hover over the app -> Click your BB Button -> Edit Permissions.

    Like I had said though, this is on a 8830 World Edition. Running relatively OLD software compared to your spiffy storm.. :P

    I don't have my storm anymore so I can't tell you exactly what is like, but on my 8830 I can edit http or apn access etc. Hopefully someone else with a storm can help yah out, my 8830 can only go as far as RIM lets it.

    I just found another one - maybe this will help you out..:

    Options -> Security Options -> Application Permitions -> Hover over a specific app -> Click your BB Button -> Edit Permissions -> BB Button -> Expand -> Change Desired Permission.



    I hope it helps!

    EDIT: This is pretty off-topic though, if you need any more help - please PM me..

    That isn't how is shows on the storm. When I do Options->Security Options-> then at this point you can pick one of the following:Advanced Security Options, Encryption, Firewall, Information, or Security Wipe. Going into any of those options does not get me into a place to edit permissions.
