SpyFlex Mobile Spyware Trojan is 'more' than we think.

It's already several weeks now that the AV industry found this trojan. This application installs itself without any kind of indication as to what it is. And when it is installed on the phone it completely hides itself from the user. So the application could easily be used by malware installing it as part of its payload, or a hacker could simply send it to a victim over Bluetooth and trust that there are enough curious people to install it. Not to mention the fact that spying on people's private communication is illegal in most countries around the world. And the fact that all of the information is stored on the FlexiSpy servers, puts the company in a rather interesting light... this company is watching everything. I've given an interview for 'Het Nieuwsblad' a Belgian newspaper to clarify the situation. You can find this at our press page. Honestly, this program is definitely a 'trap' in any way! Lucky that at least all mobile AV programs do find this Trojan Spyware.
