Yesterday, we told you about a ominous denial from the FBI regarding its involvement with Carrier IQ. Today, Carrier IQ spoke to us on the matter.
Well, I suppose this was inevitable: the FBI, via a Freedom of Information Act request denial, inadvertently admitted to using Carrier IQ data. That’s data about you, sucked off of your phone, without your knowledge.
We knew lawsuits would arise over Carrier IQ. Just a day after the US Senate launched an investigation into the debacle, Carrier IQ, Samsung and HTC have been nailed with class action lawsuits that could cost them hundreds of millions of dollars.
