Any owner of a PDA/Handheld device has long known about various security applications that can be installed. These range from tracking IMSI and SIM phone numbers to more sophisticated ones that can format sensitive files, render the device useless all while running in pure stealth (think rootkit).
With my recent purchase of the X500, i was taking a look at these apps and found a rather large hole in the market … there was no program that could leverage my integrated GPS. Low and behold, Zloy has just started up an opensource (VB) application called MJustice that does just this.
Sms request should start with pass phrase configured in “Pass Phrase” edit box. After pass phrase you can specify one or more commands.
+g : Get GPS coordinates (After Fix become available Phone will send SMS reply to command message with own coordinates)
+m msg : Display message box with “msg” message
+l : Execute LocationCall.exe application
It was originally designed for the MioA701 so i was surprised when this sucker actually worked! Its still early days yet, but i can certainly see improvements including the ability to transmit the thief’s entire phonebook, sms history and the like to my secondary device.
If someone has the balls to try and steal it from a bloke who stands at 6’7″, looks like i now wont be too far away ..
