RIM finds and fixes critical BlackBerry Enterprise Server Bug

Although no one seems to have taken advantage of it, a bug existed with RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) which would have allowed hackers to gain access to the companies network by means of a malicious PDF file.

The program was technically within the PDF distiller component of the BlackBerry Attachment Service (BAS) which runs on BES, but an update that has been released to BES, version 4.1 Service Pack 6 (4.1.6), will patch the problem for people running a Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino email server.

Users of Novell GroupWise can download 4.1.4 and receive the same bug fix.
