    Secunia Security Advisory......


    DESCRIPTION:
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in BlackBerry Tablet OS,
    which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site
    scripting attacks, bypass certain security restrictions, gain
    knowledge of potentially sensitive information, and compromise a
    user's system.

    The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 2.0.1.358 and prior.


    SOLUTION:
    Update to OS version 2.0.1.668 or later.


    Thought this was important to us Playbooker's so I posted it.

    In particular, no but it does appear to be the case. I can't even get it on any of my PlayBook's any more.

    That explains why I can't get the update then. By any chance does anyone have a copy of it that they backed up with DM?

    For those who are unable to get the update, don't worry.
    On the BlackBerry PlayBook, the BlackBerry Tablet OS is designed to restrict an application's access to system resources and the private data of other applications, which limits the risk and exposure to customers. There are no known attacks against BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users at this time. BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users who have updated the BlackBerry Tablet OS to version 2.0.1.668 or later are protected from these vulnerabilities.

    so I should stop thinking that my mom can't even update her PB?
    Here I was trying to talk her through the update over the phone & was pulling my hair out trying to figgure out what she was doing wrong. I couldn't understand why was she unable to find the update! lol

    I heard that the shoe phones have now been delayed due to hardware. They want to make the shoe phones out of new super smooth baby T-Rex leather, but have to wait for the T-Rex to hatch.....Should be ready by the end of the year

    I get this feeling that a cloned t-rex will beat BB10 to market. And then eat the pb for lunch.
