Research in Motion's Blackberry technology has quickly become the defacto standard for executives and technical personnel alike to maintain unteathered remote access to critical data. Often regarded as inherently secure, most administrators deploy this solution without a full understanding of the technology or risks involved.
This presentation will demonstrate how an attacker could utilize many typical corporate blackberry deployments to directly attack machines on the internal network—behind your perimiter defenses! The tools and source code presented will be available for attendees. Techniques for reducing the risks associated with this technology will also be presented.
