    BlackBerry BB10 OS uses dated protocols that leave users at risk to known cryptographic attacks, according to a security researcher. The latest version of the smartphone maker's operating system, BlackBerry 10, uses TLS 1.0, while competitors use TLS 1.2. According to the researcher, this leaves BlackBerry fans using BB10 at risk of being attacked by BEAST, a cryptographic attack developed in 2011 that's capable of decrypting sensitive web traffic protected by the ubiquitous secure sockets layer protocol.
