Submission + - RIM gets a copy of your IMAP password on the Blackberry 10

Fefe writes: When you use the mail app on the Blackberry 10, and enter your IMAP username and password, an IP address from the RIM IP range will connect to your mail server with your credentials, which means that a) RIM is NSA'ing your email credentials and b) if your mail server is not configured with mandatory SSL, your credentials might be sent over the internet from Canada in clear text. The guy who found this out lives in Germany, and he notes that for him the route to that RIM IP goes through both the US (NSA) and the UK (GCHQ).

Submission + - Google Maps SSL traffic reveals location being browsed->

Fefe writes: "By sniffing the SSL traffic of someone browsing around on Google Maps, it is possible (if you have a database of the sizes of the tile images) to determine what location he is looking at. This site has a nice youtube demo in a lab, but this also works on a Starbucks WiFi or so."
