BlackBerry Internet Service environment. The proof of concept applications discussed in this research are developed to 
examine the response of BlackBerry inbuilt security framework. Through this research, SMobile concludes that there are 
certain instances of attacks that may be successful in bypassing the security framework of BlackBerry and poses a
