DavidB let me know about these two little applications that really kind of scare me. The BlackBerry is pretty impenetrable to attacks but software can be installed on a BlackBerry to let you do some pretty scary stuff.
For example, there is a FREE application called PhoneSnoop that lets you dial into the infected BlackBerry and use it as a remote bug. The application will automatically answer the phone and turn on the speakerphone letting you listen into what the victim is doing. It shows no indication that it is doing so on the BlackBerry which is kind of scary… Check it out at this link or more info at this link.
The second is called FlexiSPY pro and was featured on The Register. This app takes things one step further with its $249 price tag and lets you not only perform remote listening along with reading the infected BlackBerrys emails, SMS, call logs, and GPS location.
Crazy stuff!!! I wish RIM would let you password protect certain features on the phone like being able to install applications…
