BlackBerry ‘spyware’ can steal secrets

BlackBerry ‘spyware’ can steal secrets

Brett Winterford and Munir Kotadia, ZDNet Australia

Research in Motion’s (RIM) BlackBerry which is popular with corporate users due to its secure management of mobile e-mail is vulnerable to ‘legal’ spyware that has been classified as a Trojan by several security vendors.

RIM’s BlackBerry has won significant market share in the corporate sector due to a perception that it is impervious to security attacks.

But an updated version of the FlexiSPY application, considered a security threat by most IT security vendors, enables a remote attacker to tap into phone calls and e-mails sent to and from a Blackberry-enabled device.

“This is the first [Trojan] for a BlackBerry we have ever seen,” said Patrik Runald, senior security specialist with F-Secure.

Marketed as a spyware device for BlackBerry phones, the FlexiSPY application by Bangkok-based manufacturer Vervata is sold on the premise that it can “spill BlackBerry secrets.”

Once physically installed on a mobile device, a remote user is given complete monitoring and access control.

This includes bugging voice calls, logging mobile e-mail messages and SMS, tracking the location of the user, or even remotely switching on the phone’s microphone to bug a user regardless of whether they are on a call.

While FlexiSPY also works on Windows Mobile and Symbian-based devices, and is sold on the premise of catching a cheating spouse, ‘disloyal’ employee or for the monitoring children, there can be no doubt that a BlackBerry targeted version is aimed squarely at corporate espionage.

Its use in a boardroom, for example, could have catastrophic implications for any organisation.

RIM, manufacturer of the BlackBerry, was unavailable for comment by press time.
