  • Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!
    Posted on December 8, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    The Big Brother-esque actions of major carriers like ATT&T and Sprint has many consumers in an uproar and clamoring for vindication.  There is major concern of the possibility of Carrier IQ installed a tracking device that monitors texting keystrokes and cell phone usage on mobile devices.  The vendor is known for its root kit software which may be reporting users’ keystrokes, messages, and browsing history. This is an amazing case touting the many benefits of unlocked smartphones where you as the consumer can choose a carrier that does not work with Carrier IQ.


    Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!


    According to aforementioned vendor, the carriers use the software to “collect enough information to understand the customer experience with devices on our network and how to devise solutions to use and connection problems.”  That is fine and dandy, but the capability of the software to stealthily share sensitive information is alarming and Carrier IQ gives the carriers access to most or all of it.   Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover how premium electronic accessoriesspecifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    There is, however, a new app from BitDefender that will put Android phone users at ease to protect against the Carrier IQ intrusion. This neat app detects the Carrier IQ software on the Google OS phones within seconds. Google Market has made the Carrier IQ Finder app free. Upon installation, tap the icon and voila! You’re an informed consumer with the knowledge of whether the software is on your handset or not. This action is still advisable to consumers shopping for an unlocked phone that will be carrier-neutral.


    Where to go from that point? Well. There are limited options. You can install the removal tool developed by Eckhart (the security researcher who discovered the Carrier IQ software on his handset) which can be found at this Android Market link: Logging TestApp Pro Key. Or, you can install a third-part ROM.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand accessories.


    Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!Because both of these actions require rooting the device (which makes sense in eradicating rootkit software), it is advisable to casual smartphone users to seek out a smartphone savvy friend or professional. The last recourse option is to wait for the carriers to issue software updates to uninstall the tool. This could come quickly as Carrier IQ related lawsuits are building up steam and the carriers will want to mitigate damages.   Let our trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - discover how cool you can be.


    The public is currently in the dark on how this technology and collected information has been used by the carriers in question. No doubt there will be more news and details made available in the coming legal circus, but until there is a true fix in removing the root kit on your smartphone, user beware of what information you’re making available and considering sidestepping the carrier-smartphone manufacturer exclusivity fray the next time around with an unlocked phone.

    A lingering black cloud seems to be looming over Blackberry-maker RIM.  Starting with their announcement of a huge write-off on its Playbook Tablet, then having one of their company executive facing legal charges following a stampede at new device launch in  Indonesia and just last week having  two executives behaviour divert a plane.  Most recently, RIM was forced to rebrand their next-generation BBX platform to BlackBerry 10 after a trademark dispute with Basis of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    Our sources indicate that software company Basis International released a statement saying that a US federal court in Albuquerque has granted a temporary restraining order against RIM, barring it from using Basis' BBX trademark.  The judicial injunction officially bars RIM from using the trademark at its Asian DevCon conference on Wednesday and Thursday in Singapore.  This conference typically introduces a plethora of innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most respected and leading brands.


    "RIM doesn't typically comment on pending litigation, however RIM has already unveiled a new brand name for its next generation mobile platform. As announced at DevCon Asia, RIM plans to use the 'BlackBerry 10' brand name for its next generation mobile platform," RIM said.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand accessories.

    Research in Motion is counting on the BBX platform technology to revive its BlackBerry franchise, yet, it seems that is has run into trouble even before the company could install the system in its latest BlackBerry smartphone line.


    Albuquerque-based Basis International claims the "BBX" name is protected by trademarks it holds and that they had earlier threatened to take legal action against RIM unless it stopped using the moniker.  Moreover, Basis said RIM had refused requests to stop using the moniker at the DevCon conference, which resulted in the company filing for the temporary restraining order.  BAs for Blackberry, BX had been the planned name for the software that would power the phones, which will mark a transition to a form of the QNX operating system presently used on the PlayBook Tablet.
