    An article on slashdot mentions the following: Ashik Ratnani writes with this snippet from Hungry Hackers: "A tool that automatically steals IDs of non-encrypted sessions and breaks into Google Mail accounts has been presented at the Defcon hackers' conference in Las Vegas. Last week, Google introduced a new feature in Gmail that allows users to permanently switch on SSL and use it for every action involving Gmail, not just authentication. Users who did not turn it on now have a serious reason to do so, as Mike Perry, the reverse engineer from San Francisco who developed the tool, is planning to release it in two weeks."

    I wonder if this effects my Gmail account on my blackberry verizon curve? Are there any special steps to take to properly secure my blackberry gmail. Is it possible to enable SSL?

    Any insight from knowledgeable crackberry lovers would be appreciated!
