Spyware has become a primary tool used in the capture of personal and private data. Surreptitiously installed on the computing system of a target victim, spyware can capture, log, monitor, and exfiltrate any data that the spyware owner desires. Your phone holds all of the same personal information as your computer, only in a smaller form factor. While a number of "vendors" sell Blackberry spyware, until now only a limited number of public code examples exist. Real time capture of SMS messages, Emails, and phone call logs are a fraction of the features to be presented. Full source code to the spyware will be released. Definition of the potential risk and threat involved in mobile related spyware is a requirement to implementation of security mechanisms. Finally, functional reference code has been presented and released that can be used in a positive manner. Until then only shady web sites selling compiled versions of the code for $100 - $400 annually existed. This is a future looking presentation that will help others learn about the security of their personal data in the time of mobile devices.
