ZDNet is reporting “legal” spyware which targets Blackberry. The software is FlexiSPY and is marketed as software to catch cheating spouses, etc. According to ZDNet the software:
Once physically installed on a mobile device, a remote user is given complete monitoring and access control. This includes bugging voice calls, logging mobile e-mail messages and SMS, tracking the location of the user, or even remotely switching on the phone’s microphone to bug a user regardless of whether they are on a call.
I don’t see how there should be any “legal” to something which does the above…but what do I know?
