Re: antivirus

Any antivirus for BlackBerry is just snake oil. Don't waste your money.

Worthless. You can't have an "anti" virus for where there is NO virus.

Re: antivirus

Since you have, indeed, returned to follow up on your questions, please don't post so many one-line questions on the forum. Many of your questions are related and could easily be posted in one thread. It makes your questions appear to be spam, even if they are legitimate questions.

Re: antivirus

Regarding viruses and malware...   Never say NONE.

CNET Artical from 6/18/2013

 

"BlackBerry has released a security update resolving an escalation of privilege vulnerability that existed in "BlackBerry Protect" enabled devices running version 10.0.10.261 and earlier operating systems. The company says that version 10.0.9.2743 is not affected and that they have found no evidence of attackers exploiting this vulnerability in the wild.

 

Customer risk is relatively low, the advisory explains, because a successful exploitation of this vulnerability would only be possible on devices with Blackberry Protect enabled and on which the BlackBerry Protect feature has been used to reset the user's password. Furthermore, the more severe exploitation requires that an attacker has physical access to the device after its user has downloaded a maliciously crafted application."
