[liberationtech] Carrier IQ

In which case you better throw away your phone since the carrier log it all in real time and have no problem sending it over to law enforcement via easy-peasy dashboards for a small fee.

Let me say it again - evidence would be good. Paranoia, hype, and flip statements are not.

Does anyone know whether the ATM logs the serial number
of the bills issued to a particular person? (I know that
the bank itself does log it).

Presence of the rootkit is all the evidence you need.
Past experience has shown that everything which can be
used eventually will.
