This morning, the Independent writes about iphones 'secretly' collecting
data of your whereabouts and storing it in unencrypted files.

I have an Android phone, but the article raises the more general question of
smartphone security.

How do you audit the security of your smartphone? In particular, what Linux
tools can be leveraged for Android phones?

Never mind apps from dubious sources. How do you audit the security of the
vanilla system release?

And how do you keep 'the badies' at bay? Any views on firewalls?
