A BB upgrade sent out by a carrier in Etisalat in Dubai and Abu Dhabi was actually spyware. RIM says it doesn't know anything about this and has nothing to do with it and are telling affected people how to get rid of it. Needless to say, no one knows why the carrier sent out the update. For spying reasons perhaps?

This is scary on so many levels as many people who aren't even aware of such programs possible can be so openly available to attacks like these.

So how secure is your mobile phone again?
