PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, well, well, what have we here? Hackers have gained access to internal documents from the Indian Military (shared on the web), and in it, it is revealed that RIM, Nokia, and Apple have added backdoors to their mobile software (BlackBerry, S40 (supposedly), and iOS) which the Indian Military's intelligence service then used to spy on the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (the USCC). The backdoors were added by RIM, Nokia, and Apple in exchange for Indian market presence.

What does the law say in such a case?

I'ts pretty damn close to treason, I think. It probably isn't, technically, but it's almost there.

They sold national security for money (or market share, whatever). It fits quite well the definition of treason in most dictionaries out there, so i think that they truly committed treason, even technically speaking.

That's quite sad...
