BlackBerry update in UAE causes problems

We’ve recently reported on O2 Germany’s Toshiba virus and Symbian’s certified worm.

The update was provided by telecoms firm Etisalat who suggested it would improve performance – but instead it degraded performance and sent received messages back to a central server.
