    Do BB OS gets viruses from the internet? Apps? Downloads? Other media transfering? Etc?

    In short, no with exceptions depending on how you define virus.

    If you include "malware" it is technically possible on a blackberry, but you have to give it permission to do it.

    You'd have to restrict permission(s) to an app you suspect contains such malware. To do this on BB 10 (I'm not sure of the exact path on OS 7 and earlier), swipe down on your homescreen and follow Settings>Security and Privacy>Application Permissions then select an app and allow or disallow permissions from there.


    I hope that helps you.
