    This is one of the reasons I've not gone mobile really, it's far too easy to be unsecured on this stuff, and very little can be done to secure them. I'm with the one guy down in the comments section, OEM should leave things the hell alone.

    As a user of an HTC Android device to say I am disappointed would be an understatement.

    I just cannot understand how an organisation such as HTC does not have robust policies and procedures to safeguard against this type of occurrence. :rolleyes: It's not even possible to hide behind a firewall. Although I do have security installed on my device (lookout) it won't protect me against this type of poor software implementation and design. :mad:

    Damn, that's also why I almost always install custom firmware.

    REad about this earlier. I have an HTC. Running rooted without sense so I'm not worried... not that I would be anyways.
