    Hey miss_vickies,

    I am going to move this thread into the Lounge, I just think it is a better place for it and will get some more interest there.

    I saw an interesting presentation a few months back that kinda mirrors this... it was about FinSpy, which is a mobile rootkit for many major mobile platforms (android, apple ios, etc.) that could do a lot.

    SMS interception, record phone conversations, ... pretty much anything the phone can do, this could do. I can't really recall now if it had botnet capabilities, but I do believe it did (seems like it would, given everything else it can do).

    Stay safe guys, only install *trusted* software. :)

    FinSpy was claimed detected on iPhones and BlackBerry, with the ominous "could be on others."

    Agree 100% though, only install trusted apps - and don't hand out your phone at parties. ;) :)
