Risky Business: BlackBerry malware

This week's episode of the Risky Business podcast uncovers trojans that can attack BlackBerry email devices.

This week's edition of Risky Business is brought to you by the folks at the big Yellow Box - Symantec! Big thanks also go out to Vigabyte for providing the bandwidth for the podcast. On this week's show:

  • Our favourite newshound, ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia, discusses the week's news
  • This week's feature interview is with Graeme Neilson of Aura Software Security and we're talking BlackBerrys. Aura's developed a trojan for the gadget that Neilson uses in security audits - he describes it as BackOriface (remember that?) for the BlackBerry - and if you thought getting badware to run on the mobile devices is hard, you're sadly mistaken
  • Symantec's Rob Pregnall joins host Patrick Gray to talk about a new banking trojan that side-steps two factor authentication in this week's sponsor interview
  • Risky Business takes a quick look at some questionable marketing tactics being used by an anti-spyware software manufacturer during a chat with Netregistry CEO Larry Bloch
