I saw from this mornings mail out yet another statement of the obvious regarding phone spyware - this time MSpy. There may be others on the list like Spyera or spyfone but I got bored reading it.

"Its to allow parents / employers monitor authorized devices but really its for spying on your partner".

No one ever talks about these things being used for theft.

Consider this, you are on your expensive new phone in a built up area and some low-life snatches it and cycles off.

But as soon as you report the loss to the police, your luck is in - some honest soul has found it and returned it still in pristine condition.

What you don't realize is that since it was snatched unlocked, our low-life was able to get spyware onto it then hand it in to a police station and now just has to sit back, monitor it, capture your bank details, home details and anything else they wish...

Same probably goes for cheap phone deals from online auction sites.
