All this by opening an E-mail. It's really nothing new but I feel it is my duty to keep my fellow salooners aware and informed. There is no such thing as a fully secure device. http://www.redmondpie.com/this-mobi...lete-control-over-your-ios-or-android-device/ For those that believe that Appleâ€™s industry leading smartphone is impervious to viral or spyware infections then it would be the right time to brace yourself for some bad news that it just isnâ€™t the case. A mobile variant of the commercial FinFisher spyware, produced by the United Kingdom-based Gamma Group, is capable of assuming control of a range of popular smartphones, including those made by Cupertino-based Apple and struggling technology company, Research In Motion (RIM). According to a recent study from Citizen Lab of the Toronto Munk School of Global Affairs, the spyware in question has the capability to track the location of the device using the embedded GPS hardware, monitor incoming and outgoing e-mails and text messages, and perhaps the most frightening one: it can toggle the microphone of the device on or off to listen to whatâ€™s happening at any given time. As part of the research, the team involved hoped to demonstrate the reach that this type of spyware has and how it can be used to effectively track the every move of the unaware user.
