Default Cell phone spy ware news report and article

There is a TV News report on the website of TV Station WTHR in Indianapolis. You can do a google search for "bob segall wthr cell phone spyware" Bob Segall is the reporter, and the 1.5st result links to the story and video. (Not the 1st or 2nd/3rd link)

I would post the link here, but since I only signed on to make this post, I will have top post 9 more responses before getting the privilege to post web or email addresses - according to Site Point. Sorry.

There is a video link of the 5 minute news story on the right. You can watch it on that page. Also read the story because it has an update about some related things.

I have found websites for most of companies mentioned. Some of them offer solutions to prevent the software they sell infecting your phone. Clever - playing both sides.

There are also a few resources doing investigations into this abuse, but no simple solutions were offered in the story - only a 6 O'Clock news type of RUN FOR YOUR LIFE WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE warning.

I got to this Blackberryforum thread by searching for programs that might detect the problem you are encountering, but since I was here, I thought I'd answer your question before continuing.

I hope you solve your problem.

There should really be an entry in the FAQ or a sticky... Most of these programs are scams or are incompatible with the BlackBerry... Too many unsuspecting people out there... :(

First off-it would be "creepy" if it was a stranger...not your husband. Only a cheater would say that their spouse was "creepy" by spying on them. Any normal person would just explain they aren't cheating. Your response to his "spying" is creepy.

Next what is "creepy" is when your Blackberry is hacked remotely by spyware from a industry competitor. Some dumbass had spyware installed so that they could attempt to steal my customers-but they got caught.

As for ANYONE saying this is impossible just leave your cell phone number in a reply and I'll make the impossible, possible to you. Remotely installing software on computers has been very mainstream for decades...guess what- the blackberry is just a cpu-mobile cpu that is connected automatically to a network at all times. It seems so complex, but actually as simple as 1+1=2 to someone who knows the technology..

I don't have any secrets, especially none that I would keep from a spouse, however their are things about my business that would change my entire life if my competition knew...that's creepy.

Wrong answer. There are creepy spouses -- anyone trying to spy on their spouse is creepy. End of discussion.
