Gary Miliefsky was interviewed by Bret Baier about an alarming privacy breach posed by smartphone flashlight apps.
Miliefsky, who has allegedly advised two White House administrations on cybersecurity, described this problem as bigger than Ebola because 500 million people are infected and they don’t know it.
Miliefsky explained that the top 10 flashlight apps currently available at the Google Play store are all malware.
“They’re malicious, they’re spying, they’re snooping and they’re stealing,” he said, adding that that stolen information has primarily flowed into three countries: China, India and Russia.
Miliefsky added that the stolen data is used mainly for criminal purposes, but if one of those states wants information on Americans, they now have easier access.
