    Found this new article, still interesting even though I quickly read it and didn't see any mention of Blackberry.

    Well, BB10 phones from 2011 (if I'm not mistaken) still got a recent update.
    The more interesting point for me would be: How many unpatched vulnerabilities are there in BB7 or BB10? If there are no known holes in BB7 then I'd feel relatively safe using my 9900.

    I couldn't find a definitive list, but that could just mean nobody publishes one for BlackBerry any more.

    Physically it is very very secured. No one wants to steal it for sure. If an iPhone sat next to it, I am sure the thief would take the iPhone.

    Haha... for SOME of us, 99's represent tools for WORK! A four letter expletive for "others". Lol.

    Here's an interesting tidbit:
    https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/0..._attack_again/

    Basically it's when browsers get pointed to Unicode URL's which look like regular English words. In this case, the example site they give looks like www.apple.com

    My latest Chrome & Firefox desktop browsers failed this test (as noted in the article). Looks like apple.com, which it shouldn't.

    How does my Bold 9900 fare?
    In the URL bar, it looks like www.appIe.com (depends on your font maybe), but the lower case L actually looks upper case I for me and clearly stands out as a bit fishy. Better, the history list clearly shows the "correct" address which looks like gibberish.

    BB10 browser even better and it shows up "correct" even in URL field.

    Not sure what Android will show, but given even desktop Chrome doesn't handle it correct yet...

    So anyways, I'm just sayin', maybe BB's systems haven't received as many updates cause they were pretty secure to start with, which is consistent with lack of security advisories.
    If an outdated, unsupported BB7 browser is doing better (at least with this particular issue) than current desktop Google, maybe it's not an outlandish theory.

    2001! Wow, well I try to not click any sites except the official sites but it could be an issue if searching google results or something.

    Good read.
