    Default Virus on bbm?

    i know there has never been a virus on blackberry but before i call my friends idiots i would just like to get my ducks in a row. i have gotten several messages from friends telling me there is a new virus going around. it tells you there is a new version of bbm called bbm06 and to download it but its a virus. is this just some chain message that they fell for and are passing around? sorry if the title alarmed anyone.

    I believe its a hoax. Ive never heard of a (real) virus on a Berry.

    i figured as much but wasnt sure. i did a google search and ive been on here all day and saw nothing about it until a few mins ago. didnt seem real. if it was a figured it would be on the main page but thought i would ask anyway.

    Anything with memory can carry a virus, so I wouldn't disregard it.
