Phantom Personal Message in Status Line

Recently my friend bb msg me that my personal message is strange and when I check, it was a message that I did not type in. First of all, how could this has happened, has my BB been hacked into remotely? Next, I change the personal message from "view my Profile" and my friend told me that there is no change reflected at her end. My next question, is there a glitch in BB server which did not update the personal message to other receipients? Appreciate some light on this matter. Thank you.

Yes, last Thursday there was a BBM server issue which caused BBM not to to work for some, and slow status  updates, avatars, etc., to backlog along with the D and R message ticks to be slow or not working.

 

I doubt your BBM has been hacked... would be a first.

Re: Phantom Personal Message in Status Line

Good to know and thanks! It would be a big disappointment if the BB security has been compromised. However, I still do not know how the phantom message got there, I suppose I will have to live not knowing....until it happens again, if ever.
