    NSA is behind this spyware. The FBI called the NSA because they were upset with iOS 8 and its encryption foiling their ability to forensics software to get at the data stored on the phone. NSA said sure we can help you out ;)

    Ok it can stay in PRIS now.

    Yeah, nothing to worry about. Bradl figured it out everyone. Move on nothing to see here.

    This is proof that the NSA CAN put spyware on our phone though.

    So much for iOS 8 security :mad:

    Well, then surely you know that you don't need to infect a phone when you can simply sweep up its traffic along with everyone else's right? OR that the "policing" software industry (products like FinFisher) mean that you can get into pretty much any device you need to (with physical access), is a multibillion dollar a year affair right?

    So change your thread title. I hear it's as easy as changing your political affiliation.

    Dude, I've been a Linux systems administrator for the past 21 years. Believe me when I say that you don't have a clue about what you are talking about, and have no idea between what a virus is, what malware is, and what spyware is.

    You should... no.. you NEED to read up on those before posting things like this, especially when what you are posting spreads nothing but FUD.

    Trust me: you aren't going to save any face on this.

    Good post.

    IMSI catchers are increasingly appearing in police agencies in the United States after wide deployment by the FBI. I've reported on them myself and there's a very big hole in privacy protected only by the individual agencies own policies. If they decide they want to retain all the data, they probably can without significant case law telling them they can't.

    While the revelations about the NSA were a very big deal, I'm convinced that a great number of local agencies are just as bad and are harvesting very private data without any protections.

    Please. Everyone thinks they're Steve Jobs acting like they know more than everyone else :rolleyes: Hate to inform you, but acting like you know and knowing are 2 different things.

    You're right. I know. You act like you know. You do not know.

    One single question will determine my previous statement. Answer this:

    If it is a virus, how does it spread?

    I await your response.
