quote: I do agree that this whole thing has been a bit overblown, but when they asked the CEO at CIQ "Could you at CIQ read the information in someones SMS if you wanted to?" and his answer was "probably, yes".So it still is a security concern for those who security/privacy matters to. Not saying they ARE reading messages and misuing information, but they certainly have the capabilities to. I don't see any reason why the contents of data transmissions would ever need to be packaged up and sent to them for telemetry data.
