Cell Phone Spyware and Security
The new trend on the block that totally compromises user cell phones is cell phone spy software. The ramifications of this new trend are endless. User conversations, text messages, videos, pictures and web browsing can all be monitored in real-time. One additional critical area is using cell phone for credit card payments or with PayPal type payments where card indexing data resides in the phone. The implications are a total compromise of wireless financial transactions. And worse, this spy software can work with laptops and PCs as well. So far many on-line spy software companies are forming and offering solutions for every type of "Smart" phone out there. iPhone (Apple), Android/Droid (Google), Symbian (Nokia), Window's Mobile (MicroSoft), and Blackberry are all very vulnerable.
