  • Deleted That BBM Message? Think Again!!


    So, you deleted that BBM from your girlfriend from your phone? You know, that one with the type of talk that wouldn't make prime-time TV? Or you sent some serious confidential business information to a client or rep in the field over BBM. It's all securely off your BlackBerry and theirs now....or so you think.

    Cellebrite, a mobile forensic data company, has announced that it can now decode deleted BBM messages and group messages in it's latest update to it's software. In Cellebrite's spatement, they say that they're able to map a complete image of the BlackBerry NAND memory layout from BlackBerry OS'es versions from OS 4 to 7.1.

    These technological advances affirm our commitment to deliver the most thorough data extraction capabilities for the newest, most popular, and widest range of mobile devices to our mobile forensics customers,” said Cellebrite Co-CEO Ron Serber. “They enable investigators to continue to be more flexible and responsive when investigating all different types of crimes. This responsiveness makes the legal process that much more efficient.
    However true this may be and in the long run, help LEO and government agencies catch the bad guys, the question remains does this give those powers Big Brother status? And then where exactly does privacy start and end? Also, when you want to get rid of your old BlackBerry, is it going to make you think twice before selling it? Are you more likely to take a hammer to your old reliable BlackBerry instead of just the tried and true security wipe? Please leave a comment and let us know what you think on the subject.
