Spook Software Stolen !!!

Professionally written code, used by security services worldwide to spy and access practically anything on a smartphone or tablet, has been stolen and uploaded to the internet.

Available as a free download and previously undetectable by anti-virus and malware detection programs, this software is used by many governments and law enforcement agencies to eavesdrop on devices it is installed on.
