    The other day I emailed myself a zip file. It contained a file within the zip that is known to root android devices. This file was for my amazon fire TV. It was a utility to send commands to the fire TV for customisation of spmc/xbmc. I was tired of using the command line. The utility can also root the fire TV hence the android rooting file.

    When I received the email on my BlackBerry it said that the file was disinfected. I have never seen such a message, never had a file that showed as a virus received in any of my email accounts. Although it was a false positive in my case as I was never intending to use the rooting feature or unzip it on my phone I was pleasantly surprised there was an anti virus.

    What does the BlackBerry 10 phones use for email scanning and disinfecting?
    Are all emails that pass through BlackBerry devices scanned?
    And if so are they being scanned on the handheld or by BlackBerry servers offsite?

    Are you sure it wasn't disinfected by your email provider?
