We use exchange 2003, BES server and blackberry.

If a user click a bad link on his handheld, what is the chance of the server is being infected?  Just checking.

Thanks.

Hi, it is very unlikely as the Blackberry device and browser is able to run the malicious code in most cases.  Having said that you dont know all exploits that are in the wild so always consider it as a possibility and take precautions.  To be on the safe side you can force all your Blackberry users to access the internet via the MDS service on the BES.  Assuming you have a web filtering system in place you can then force the MDS data via this filter.

Here are a few IT policies to consider:

1. Device-Only Items > Enable WAP Config = False. This will remove the carriers WAP browser (e.g. Telstra Business Portal).
2. Browser Policy Group > MDS Browser Title = <company name> Internet . This clearly identifies the MDS browser to users.
3. Browser Policy Group > Allow IBS Browser = False. This removes the internet browsing service that allows users to bypass the MDS service.
4. Browser Policy Group > MDS Browser Use Separate Icon = True. This ensures a separate icon on the home screen for the MDS browser.
5. Service Exclusivity policy group> Allow Other Browser services = False. This will allow no other browser services except for the BlackBerry Browser to access the web.
