Blackberry responded to the news about the success of the Dutch forensic team in decrypting emails on a Blackberry device, as it was posted officially on their blog. Previously, it was reported that the police in two countries claimed that they can read the encrypted data from Blackberry devices. They can read the encrypted emails and access to one of the most secure devices in the world, which famously couldn’t be hacked at all. There is no detailed report how they can do that and the detailed information related to this. However, this news made a Canadian Company respond.
“BlackBerry does not have any details on the specific device or the way that it was configured, managed or otherwise protected, nor do we have details on the nature of the communications that are claimed to have been decrypted,” the company said.
They also said that the Blackberry doesn’t make a backdoor for anybody, and it is a safe and private device as they have always been.
“Furthermore, there are no backdoors in any BlackBerry devices, and BlackBerry does not store and therefore, cannot share BlackBerry device passwords with law enforcement or anyone else. In other words, provided that users follow recommended practices, BlackBerry devices remain as secure and private as they have always been”
Regarding the report from Naked Security by Shopos said that the police succeeds in decrypting emails on a PGP Blackberry device, and not a Blackberry device with native security inside. PGP BlackBerry devices, however, are not sold by BlackBerry, but by resellers like GhostPGP, which customizes BlackBerry devices with PGP encryption.
