Please Ignore Health & Fitness Email From BlackBerryItalia

Newsletter If you received an email from BlackBerryItalia late last night please ignore or delete it. The company that powers the BerryReview store, Mobihand, sent out an email newsletter last night to promote heath and fitness apps and ran into an issue. Many of the emails sent out were branded with the BlackBerryItalia logo to BerryReview Store customers who had opted in for the newsletter along with other sites like BlackBerryCool and CrackBerry. Mobihand has let us know that they have fixed the issue and they have taken steps to make sure it does not happen again.

I did not think this was worthy of an article until PU told me that he was worried that his information was compromised or sold. So I am writing this to confirm and assure you that both BerryReview & Mobihand value your information and that information has not been compromised or sold.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming… :)

  1. I wondered why I got that email. Thanks for the update.

  2. Don’t feel was just from you. received from blackberrycool as well

  3. Thanks for addressing the issue. However, though I do not think less of BerryReview I am very dissapointed with the incident. More than just a harmless spam, this exhibits the problem with requiring personal information when registering for user profiles. Not only has personal information been accessed but the more serious question is How much of that information has been ‘shared’ and/or compromised. Curious that I have explicitly opted out of any ‘News letter’ and yet I have still received the JUNK. Yes I understand payment information should be stored isolated from the general email information but distributing MY information without intention could quite possibly be an indicator of greater concern. Nevertheless, I will be purging MobiHand permanently.
