China Spy Phone Banned By E-Bay
The BBC reports that e-Bay is refusing to sell a Chinese smartphone pre-installed with spyware.
The phone, called Star N9500, was found by the German security firm G Data to be relaying personal data to a China-based server.
No one knows who makes the Star N9500.
The spyware programme was disguised as the Google Play Store app.
