Heh, thats a PR nightmare for them. That's one thing that CarrierIQ messed up and basically bite them in the ass.

Issue a C&D letter and then backtrack and say it was the carriers/manufacturers that wanted the data, not them. Pffft, like id believe them now .

LOL @ CarrierIQ for not giving hackers any credibility and arrogantly issuing lies before being exposed. And then after being exposed they have the audacity to try and pass blame. Muppets.

By the way, if anyone wants primary source material, further technical explanations and firsthand updates, Trevor Eckhart's blog can be found here.
