    I think what bothers me is statement from RIM/VZW that until there is a fix we should not use our BB for sensitive data. For people on BES isn't all their data "sensitive"??? That is an insane response IMO. That to me is like saying here is a brand new PC, just don't install any software or use the web.

    surely you jest? the leaks are unreleased/unsupported. we're discussing a browser vulnerability! all OS' ship with some sort of bug. it's just a matter of how serious it is. hell, the .75 Storm release is a classic example. but since RIM makes the OS for the phone anyway, they already know the correct settings, optimizations, etc. for the networks. As I stated earlier, somehow Apple manages to update the iPhone without carrier approval or bringing down the networks the iPhone is on. carriers shouldn't be the arbiters of what OS should or shouldn't be on a phone that's on their network. as long as the phone works within the parameters of the networks capabilities the carriers should keep their grubby little paws out of OS related upgrades, updates, etc.

    Agreed. Someone needs to do something. Because people can't just stop using their blackberries.
