    I don't know how reliable the source of this information is but it's interesting if it is true. I would wait until this can be confirmed to jump to any conclusions.

    VS iPhone: iPhone has a built-in spyware module?

    "Today an underground hacker team "web-Hack" from Russia released a whitepaper with results of iPhone firmware research. They reverse- engineered some functions and published this information. Results of a research shocked community. Russian hackers found a built-in function which sends all data from an iPhone to a specified web-server. Contacts from a phonebook, SMS, recent calls, history of Safari browser - all your personal information can be stolen.

    At present there is no additional information about this issue. Researches assume that this function either a debug feature or a built-in backdoor module for some governmental structures. Anyways this function can be used by a trojan-developers or activated by the AT&T.
    We will monitor all information about this accident and will publish it immediately."
