    Anyone know if BlackBerry was part of this or not?

    Seems the flaw would be Android related, and therefore if not patched, a BlackBerry would have fallen too?

    Anyone?

    If that was so, they would never need to patch.

    Nice thought but unfortunately ya dreamin'......one thing you learn in IT -nothing is impossible to hack - difficult, yes but not impossible

    An interesting thread though. Had a look at that Hacker News website and did a search for 'BlackBerry '. Only recent result was April 2016 where the Canadian Police obtained a master key, rest of the articles were from 2013....that looks pretty good for BlackBerry :-)

    Here is a bit more detail and video. These white hats walked away with $520K for their efforts! Good gig if you can get it!

    Note that this article says VMWare Workstation was also hacked. No BES12. Nice again, but is it because they are not trying, or they are trying and are not succeeding?

    Maybe not trying cause they know BlackBerry couldn't afford to pay them anything even if they did hack it! ;-)

    It depends, and since the specific vulnerability is kept undisclosed before being patched by Google (December, probably), there's no way of checking over here. But still, BlackBerry can make a difference: for example rooting through Quadrooter couldn't survive a reboot. On the other hand, stuff like Drammer might still be usable on a BlackBerry Android device; when I used their analysis app on a Priv running AAG853 (October patch), the app could produce memory configurations that could be exploited by some other exploit. But that's due to RAM structure, not the OS itself.

    And that April 2016 story about the master key was, in fact, very old news about a past investigation, and related to BB7, *not* BB10.

    Didn't you know it's no longer OK in our society to say a joke?

    BTW, that's another joke, for those who have trouble with joke recognition.

    Derailed from the topic... can we get back to the more serious question. This is no time for joking

    Seriously, though, I really do want to know how the DTek line would fair against this team. Actually, throw them a BB10 and BES12 set up and see what they can do.

    Do the companies being hacked have to volunteer their system or device? Is the money already up for grabs? Why are they not hacking BlackBerry?

    its about time for google seriously take a look at the droid and may be move to another better OS... secure from the start... if they got resources, develop some sdk that easy to convert old app or rewrite the old app using new "language", (just like apple develop the swift.. enhance both performance and security)... not cheap, but could be effective. rather than patch one after the other (also not cheap, but distributed from longer time... and more cat and mouse game... more mouse everyday, since it is open source). it is about time google take ownership of whole handset-both software and hardware..encrypt using both if it is necessary, with IoT and home, car, etc. daily life are depend upon it, better be careful rather than sorry...(crap app writer and elite hacker are deadly combination).

    There is no better OS in regards to the key metric they use... which isn't security.

    They are not able to hack it yet they must have tried it a million times as BlackBerry says the most secure android so that will win them a lot of attention if they could hack and post that the most secure device is what they have hacked will be good for their portfolio but they haven't had a success....i bet

    Looks like it was a Chrome bug, so using Chrome browser on a DTEK or Priv might expose you if you haven't updated.

    If, in fact, this vulnerability exists on BlackBerry Android, the next questions would be: would it achieve a persistent root (unlikely), and would DTEK/Integrity Detection catch it (likely)?

    That's the reason why BlackBerry actively patching their Android phone, ahead before the hackers, hopefully.
