"This is a phone espionage suite. It can be silently installed by just inserting an [SD] card with the files below on it. The program does not show up under installed programs or running programs and allows for a useful array or features. Phones running this software can be remotely [controlled] by [SMS] text messages," reads th description of the appliocation, according to its developers.
F-Secure said it was blocking the application with its mobile security software because of its functionality, but didnt think his motives were in question.
However, in an ethical statement, a member of the applications's developing team said:
"[The] main reason i've created this is just because I could and because it seemed challenging and different and fun. I don't actually have anybody to spy on, nor would I want to."
"I don't condone mal-intented use of my program, as I said before it's because I can and it's fun."
F-secure claims that this cool James Bond-like software could be used to do real harm in the wrong hands. The company has added detection for Phone Creeper as a backdoor and its Mobile Security blocks its installation.
