The past few days the security industry as well as the main stream media has been abuzz by the discovery made by one of the mobile security experts (Trevor Echart).  He has unveiled how an application called Carrier IQ installed in over 140 million smart phones is collecting every key stroke, every application, location, and possibly more information than we might think and sending it to a remote location.

Video presentation made by the Trevor.
