Cell Phone Spy Software Leaks Your Info

New spy software called FlexiSPY for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile phones enables users to spy on other people's text messages, call logs, e-mail and other communications. But a security researcher found that all that data was POSTED PUBLICLY, and it could be read by anyone who knows the right URLs. Each spy entry is posted in a database, and the record ID was part of the URL. So with any entry URL, you could look at others by changing the ID. Some users report that the leak has been fixed.
