Malicious Malware Installed On Your Iphone?

Recommended Posts

I found this an interesting subject. I don't know if it's true or not but just beware of apps that you install on your phone. It wouldn't surprise me if this was real though.

 

"According to Cybersecurity expert

Gary Miliefskynt

“the top 10 flashlight apps are all malware; they’re malicious, they’re spying, they’re snooping and they’re stealing.” The most alarming fact is “500,000,000 people are infected and they do not know it.” This information is a real eye-opener"

The built-in flashlight app is not stealing your data.

 

It is true that one flashlight app developer settled a complaint with the FTC over data collection policies in 2013. But the current anxiety over flashlight apps appears to have been prompted by the publicity surrounding the release of SnoopWalls' self-promotional report rather than any specific breach of data security: the SnoopWall "threat assessment report" merely stated that some flashlight apps "appear specifically designed to collect and expose your personal information to cybercriminals or other nation states"; it offered no evidence that flashlight apps were actually being used for such purposes.
