Yea, I just read that also.

Should I tell all my BB users or not.

2000+ users.

Let's not.
They shouldn't be browsing web pages on their business phone anyways.

Well the problem is 4.2.1 handheld software isn't available for every model yet, if it's even slated for the older gen units. I smell a new BES policy brewing... hmm...

4.2.1 is available for the 8100 and the 8800. Those are the only devices currently that have the problem. The 8700's dont have 4.2 OS yet. At least not officially.
