FBI Says Carrier IQ May Be Used in ‘Law Enforcement Proceedings’

FBI Says Carrier IQ May Be Used in ‘Law Enforcement Proceedings’:

Andy Greenberg:

After a video surfaced that seemed to show the software logging
keystrokes and monitoring data traffic on the more than 140
million phones on it’s installed by default, Morisy had asked the
Bureau
for any “manuals, documents or other written guidance
used to access or analyze data gathered by programs developed or
deployed by Carrier IQ.”

The FBI responded that the material couldn’t be provided, and
cited an exemption to the Freedom of Information law for
situations in which handing over documents “could reasonably be
expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings.”

Ugh. Not sure how to see this as anything other than confirmation of our worst fears about this Carrier IQ stuff.

[Me either.]
