How Not To Design An App That Deals With User Authentication: Total SMS Control Potentially Exposed Private Data Of Thousands Of Users

If you're a Total SMS Control user, you may be interested in the latest findings of our good buddy Justin Case. He uncovered some rather alarming info within the app, and by alarming, I mean a crapload of exposed data, including SMS messages, emails, call logs, phone numbers, contact information, and GPS location. Yeah.

For the uninitiated, Total SMS Control is an app used to "spy" on other mobile phones. For example, if you install TSC on your child's (or spouse, employee, etc.) phone, it will sit silently in the background collecting emails, text messages, GPS location, and more.

ASUS Transformer Prime Release Date Possibly Outed By NewEgg, Could Be Available On December 8th

While we have basically all of the info about the ASUS Transformer Prime, we are missing one of the most important details of all: the release date. ASUS has yet to unveil this last detail, but Newegg is pegging the Prime for a December 8th release date on its pre-order page.

2011-11-28 12h47_07
