RIM provided a fix in newer OS. Vulnerability downgraded to MEDIUM.

Original engadget has error. No buffer overflow condition, no loss of data -- just a device reboot because a watchdog timer times out.

There's almost no RAM in a BlackBerry -- messages are stored in flash ROM "on the fly", and messages are not lost during a reboot or battery removable.
