    Can anyone tell me what this is and what this does? I figure the best place to ask is here...

    Thanks, guys and gals.

    I saw a long discussion about it on XDA, but they didn't come to a conclusion:

    It's an HTC thing. As someone pointed out, if it was actually as nefarious as it sounds, it wouldn't have such an obvious name.

    Haha true.

    Thanks for the response. I'll keep my eye out for any process called com.google.android.infostealer or something like that. :)

    Cool, thanks for the link.

    Edit: I read through most of the thread, and theyre not really sure what it does, but I did lol at the "tinfoil hat thread" line. Good stuff.

    out of curiosity, does anyone with the OTA have the secret control modem?
    All the discussion has been with the leaks. You can find it in the Battery Use area, under Android System

    I'll try to get my hands on my daughter's phone to check. She got the OTA.

    It's also on the Hero (and presumably every htc cdma phone). It's an htc thing.

    Could this be a possible way to root the leaks. I know it's wishful thinking but it would be nice if it were lol.
