BBM Uncovers a Brazilian Scandal

Comes to something when even secure messaging systems aren't really that private.  The authorities over in Brazil have obtained warrants along with BlackBerry's help to access BlackBerry Messenger records.

Over charges over 100 people skimming money from the country's oil company, Petrobas.  The BBM chats have not only confirmed relationships between the culprits, but also when people were arranging to do cash drop-off and other suspicious activities.  There haven't been any convictions as of yet however the suspects might have a hard time trying to deny that they were involved.
