Carrier IQ rootkit logs everything on millions of phones

James Mulroy | Dec. 1, 2011
If you use an Android, BlackBerry, or Nokia smartphone then you may be at risk of being illegally wire tapped by Carrier IQ--a provider of performance monitoring software for Smart Phones.

Unfortunately, this software is a real pain to remove. If you don't want to be tracked and your device has Carrier IQ on it then your only option may be to erase and reinstall your OS. Make sure to check out the video to see what's under the hood of this data logging software.
