RIM: Service Problems Not Due to Hack
Oct 12, 2011, 2:18 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Research In Motion held a press conference this afternoon to address the service problems it is currently experiencing in regions around the globe. As it stated earlier, the problem occurred when a core switch failed and then that switch's back-up failed. RIM reiterated that the problems have nothing to do with a hack or any sort of attack. The switch failures created an intense backlog of messages and data requests, and RIM has had to throttle back BlackBerry data traffic as it processes the backlogged messages. The company assured media that fixing the problem is the company's top priority. RIM said that it is still analyzing why the core switch failed, and why its back-up switch failed. RIM said that some customers are seeing no problems, some are seeing delays in the delivery of emails and BlackBerry Messenger messages, and some are seeing total loss of BlackBerry-specific services. RIM did not provide any sort of timeframe for when users can expect to see full service restored.
