Skyfire puts BlackBerry Alpha on hiatus after leak

Skyfire puts BlackBerry Alpha on hiatus after leak
Leaked links to one of the alpha builds for Skyfire for BlackBerry has resulted in the software firm pulling the plug on the servers for the next couple of weeks. Skyfire has said that it had wanted a small number of 'Berry users testing the alpha version of the Skyfire browser, "Today our alpha application was leaked. We are temporarily halting our Alpha program. As you know, we were working with a small group of you under NDA and our intent was not to open the program beyond that small number right now. We appreciate your feedback on Alpha3, and in the next few weeks we’ll be sending you a new build to test. In the meantime, the servers will be down and you will not be able to use the application." Most likely, Skyfire will use the downtime to implement some type of security system. Imagine, consequences for those downloading leaked software. Will the madness ever end?
