VS iPhone: iPhone has a built-in spyware module?
Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Today an underground hacker team "web-Hack" from Russia released a whitepaper with results of iPhone firmware research. They reverse- engineered some functions and published this information. Results of a research shocked community. Russian hackers found a built-in function which sends all data from an iPhone to a specified web-server. Contacts from a phonebook, SMS, recent calls, history of Safari browser - all your personal information can be stolen.
At present there is no additional information about this issue. Researches assume that this function either a debug feature or a built-in backdoor module for some governmental structures. Anyways this function can be used by a trojan-developers or activated by the AT&T.
We will monitor all information about this accident and will publish it immediately.

Just because they have a TOOL for backing up your data, doesn't mean it inst going through the sniffer.And, if it can be used this way, why not the other?
After all were talking AT&T. Can you hear me now? Your World Delivered!

Alan,You must work for them?

Frankly it would not be surprising if the data is being sent by proxy to govt agencies for surveillance. I recall AT&T was sued for Aiding in Data Surveillance for the Govt:
"AT&T Sued for Role in Aiding US Government Surveillance"

from https://mobilebackup.att.com/how_it_works.html
"the application is set to automatically back up your contacts to a secure server on a weekly basis"

This specifies that only phone "Contacts" are backed up through the client software. Why then are SMS messages, Recent calls and Browsing History data sent to this server.
Besides the Cingular website specifies that the software must be downloaded and installed and only supports specific phones:
https://mobilebackup.att.com/phones_supported.html

Even if for some reason this client software was installed by default why then was it not advertised as so?
Cleary this is a sign of how we live in a surveillance society. And you should care, one has the right to privacy and dignity, this is the society you live in. Welcome to 1984.

This is impemented by law. When the frequences and protocols was granted to motorola, they where forced by CIA/USA to implement a backdor. This is only protected by a 4-bit code, an is easyli hacked/craced. When so - the phone can be used as a rom srvy system without the users knowledge. I guess tah tis "act" alo was inforced on apple, since they, as is all the other cell phone companies, still uses a motorola chip in the heart of the GSM system!

This is really hard to believe. How could this be? I'd like to see more proof. Apple wouldn't compromise the iPhone like this.

We all know Apple iPhone is very rich in multimedia features including Internet capabilities... and of course the price isn't affordable to the average people...

So if you own this Gadget I think it's better to have an extra care specially the screen, it needs Incase iPhone Slider Case to protect your iPhone from unwanted scratch.

This is only an advice... don't think it seriously if you don't want.

Peace!

I will leave you with one last fact that I hope will urge you to get an iPhone case- 1 in 3 iPhones which are bought will not be usable due to breakage after two years. Will yours be one of them?
