Carrier IQ Logs Smart Phone Keystrokes

In November 2011, security researcher Trevor Eckhart announced that he found software made by Carrier IQ that may be logging your every move on your mobile phone. 

Trevor referred to it as a "rootkit", a piece of software that hides itself while utilizing privileged access like watching your every move. Carrier IQ didn't take too kindly to this accusation, and responded aggressively with a cease-and-desist letter, and went on to deny this accusation.However, to further back his accusation, Eckhart released a video that he says shows the software working.
