    Read an article today on Toronto Star discussing the fact that millions of Android phones and tablets contain the Heartbleed software bug. It also discusses the fact that the update cycle is quite long to fix the patch.

    Does this affect BB? And if not, how can BlackBerry honestly ignore this as a golden opportunity to get the message out?

    I'd wish I saw more articles on these issues cite the security of BlackBerry. But BlackBerry is never mentioned.

    OpenSSL cryptographic software is used by many developers.

    But even if BlackBerry was free and clear.... how many people have hear of HeartBleed? How would BlackBerry promote their exceptional security? Would it involve spending money?

    I think BlackBerry should have do a lot more to let people know what BB10 was all about including security, but really focusing on what the average user could do with it. But they didn't have the hardware or the software ready at launch. And right now most of their cash is being treated like life blood, they are afraid to part with it. Even if in the long run if is necessary.
