Submission + - BlackBerry ban for French Cabinet (ft.com)

dredre123 writes: "According to the Financial Times:


Members of the new French cabinet have been told to stop using their BlackBerries because of fears that the US could intercept state secrets.

The ban has been prompted by SGDN (responsible for national security) concerns that the BlackBerry system is based on servers located in the US and the UK, and that highly sensitive strategic information being passed between French ministers could fall into foreign hands.

Unfortunately, no alternative service has been declared secure yet."

Writing software is more fun than working.
