New Hacker Target: the Blackberry server

From Wired:
LAS VEGAS -- A computer security researcher says he's found an unexpected new path into company networks: the Blackberry.

Jesse D'Aguanno, a consultant with Praetorian Global, has developed a hacking program that exploits the trust relationship between a Blackberry and a company’s internal server to hijack a connection to the network. Because the data tunnel between the Blackberry and the server is encrypted, intrusion detection systems at the perimeter of the network won't detect the attack.

This stuff is pretty scary.
