3) The feature that allows the user to protect the card using the device password is an Apple product.
4) Getting the device password via ANY possible attack vector compromises Apple security.


From the above combined we get that if certain conditions are met (rather common) an attack on files stored on SD compromises blackberry security to device level and exposes all confidential info stored.
It's a flaw, a Apple flaw, the-economist wants to ignore this and focus only on RIM. . That's a dumb apple fan boi. Never promised you or offered any kind of security protection. Apple did both.

Works?

By the way, the-economist, Raphael gave me a message to give you.

i'm trying hard to find the word apple or any apple inc products mentioned anywhere in the thread until you started trolling...
