Security Issue du jour

For those of us who have the DNS patching done, we have a new issue. Apparently there is a serious vulnerability in the PDF Distiller on Blackberry devices, and RIM has just issued a patch. You apparently have to patch both the BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) and the handheld software.

Secunia is rating this 'highly-critical' (their second highest vulnerability rating) and RIM recommends that everyone patch as soon as possible.

It affects the BES versions 4.1.3 through 4.1.5 and handheld software 4.1.4.
