+ - Congress Steps Into Carrier IQ Tracking Controvers

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "After days of hearing about the controversial software by Carrier IQ which allows its customers to track users' cell phone locations and activity, congress has finally decided to step in the matter. Sen. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat, penned a letter to Carrier IQ CEO Larry Lenhart asking for specific information about the type of data collected by the company's software. Franken also went on to suggest that Carrier IQ's policies might violate federal law, including the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The issue was originally reported by Trevor Eckhart, who followed up with a video this week that demonstrated the technology."
