I sort of remember that being an issue before I purchased a license for Cerberus, but I only use the stock messaging app, so it didn't matter. A potential problem with this issue is that the sender is likely using the same Cerberus license, and therefore the same password. A nasty thief, seeing the message come through would now know the Cerberus password for the sender, and could potentially wipe the sender's device by sending the appropriate command from the stolen phone.

This can also happen if the commands are sent manually (without using the Cerberus client app), and there is a type in the word "cerberus" in the SMS.
