    "Protestors were being targeted with the iOS trojan and a related Android spyware, the latter of which was sent over WhatsApp messages under the guise of local coder activist group Code4HK..."

    BBM won't protect you against social attacks of this kind. Be careful what software you install on any hardware.

    Hmmmm..... it could have easily been another way to distribute the malware. Just because WhatsApp was used doesn't make it bad. BlackBerry would be imune to that attack though.....

    Any thoughts if the malware, when installed within our runtime could cause harm?
