Voodoo Carrier IQ detector now available

December 2, 2011

You may have heard that an Android developer recently discovered an application running on most Android smartphones that tracks your location, keystrokes, and collects other personal information such as phone number, browsing information, contacts, and the keylogger could snag passwords and other sensitive information you enter into your phone.

Now, there's a new Android app to help identify whether your smartphone has any Carrier IQ software installed. Voodoo Carrier IQ detector was created by app developer supercurio and is only partially finished at the moment. The developer has offered the source code under an open-source license in an effort to get community help in refining it.

You can download the app from the Android market, click through to the article below for more details along with a link to download the app and/or source.
