Chinese phone with preloaded spyware

According to the Yahoo News article, a German security company recently discovered a Chinese made phone preloaded with spyware.

The spyware can allow a hacker to steal personal data, make calls and worst of all turn on your phone camera and microphone.  Yes, the hacker can see and hear what you are doing through your phone.

This is one reason why the United States is technically banning the use of Chinese made phones especially in government facilities.

The phone was sold online in China but there are no information about the manufacturer.

If you think China is only doing it....think again.  The United States has also been accused of phone tapping and spying in recent years.
