Is 9 cents euro worth your personal data?

Graham Cluley explains:

An application known as "SMS touch" constitutes a veritable security and privacy nightmare for iOS users.

SMS touch is an application that allows users to send SMS text messages to any mobile device across 820 networks in 220+ countries for just 9 euro cents. That's a fraction of what other mobile carriers would charge for an international SMS text.

The program works on iPhone and iPod touch, which means users can send SMS messages through the app if they don't even have a cellular plan. All they need is Wi-Fi, and they're good to go.
