Carrier iq spy app

 

Over the last couple of days, there has been a lot of talk around the web regarding Carrier IQ. The company makes user-tracking software for Android, BlackBerry, and Symbian handsets that secretly logs keystrokes, text messages, and other data.

Initially, the program was thought to be exclusive to the above-mentioned operating systems, so we didn’t feel the need to report on it. But chpwn , a well-known developer of jailbreak apps, has recently found Carrier IQ’s software hidden within iOS…

The program, which is known as IQRD, was exposed earlier this week by 25-year old Trevor Eckhart . The systems administrator published a video showing Carrier IQ’s application logging keystrokes from text messages, dial pad, and even encrypted web pages on his HTC EVO.

Since an Android (s goog) developer first detected a mysterious ‘spy’ app buried in his HTC phone , Carrier IQ has become the target of public outrage, a class-action lawsuit and even a Congressional inquiry. But a new study finds that the condemnation of Carrier IQ might be misplaced, if not a bit hypocritical. According to consumer survey data collected by the Yankee Group, the vast majority of mobile phone users want their operators to have access to the very information that Carrier IQ is selling them.

Yankee Group research director Sheryl Kingstone concluded that Carrier IQ and its partners did a horrible job when it came to the public implementation of its diagnostic platform, but she found that there was no nefarious intent behind it. The report also states that keystroke-logging tool found rooted in the depths of Trevor Eckhart’s HTC smartphone was not Carrier IQ’s phone performance monitoring software, but rather a factory testing app that HTC failed to deactivate before shipping.

If Carrier IQ had done a better job at educating customers about the presence and purpose of its app, it might have been welcomed by the public, rather than sued, Kingstone said. The Yankee Group’s consumer survey found that 85 percent of mobile phone using respondents wanted their operators to have access to detailed information about their device’s performance when they contacted a call center with a problem.

Welcome to Boxing for Life! This site is dedicated to teach individuals how to box, and to give back to the sport that has helped change my life. Here you will learn the basics of how to box and train.

How many times have you flipped through the channels and caught yourself stopping to tune in to a scene from one of the Rocky movies?

I, too, got caught up in the movie's theme of hard work and determination prevailing over all. As with most kids Rocky was the reason I got involved in the sport of boxing. Every time I would watch one of the movies I would find myself outside training to the soundtrack.

Allow me to opt out and uninstall Carrier IQ and other bloat/spy ware (NASCAR, Facebook, ect.) or I will be opting myself out when I drop you as my carrier.

There is no excuse for this app being installed on my phone without my ability to opt out.  Sprint - you should be ashamed!  Data collection, whether it is for business reasons or not, is not your right to collect without the knowledge and permission of your customers! Shame on you!

I just signed a two year deal with Sprint and my wife and I each have an EVO 4g. This is nothing but an invasion of privacy and very ILLEGAL!!!! I am not paying monthly fees to have some jerkoff collect my personal information, which b y the way, I never agreed to in the first place!!!!!!!!!! It would be nice if we all know who exactly is getting all of our info. It is odd that they will not give any of us that information.
