High Nessus Plugin ID 81210
SynopsisThe BlackBerry device is affected by multiple security bypass vulnerabilities.
DescriptionBlackBerry devices that are Qualcomm-based and running BlackBerry OS prior to version 7.1 are vulnerable to multiple, local security bypass vulnerabilities.
A local attacker, with access to the USB port on the device, can load a modified kernel, make persistent changes between boots, access any data contained on the device, and access any hardware on the device (i.e. camera, microphone, etc.).
SolutionContact the vendor regarding a patch.
As a workaround, ensure local access to the USB port is disabled.
