Cybersecurity – US agencies warn of flaw in BlackBerry software (Al Jazeera)

A cybersecurity flaw in software designed by BlackBerry Ltd could put at risk cars and medical equipment that use it and expose highly sensitive systems to attackers, the US drugs regulator and a federal agency has said. The warning came on Tuesday after the Canadian company disclosed that its QNX Real Time Operating System (QNX RTOS) has a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to execute an arbitrary code or flood a server with traffic until it crashes or gets paralysed.
