Major Privacy Flaw With HTC Sense OS

A report coming out today from Boy Genius Report is claiming and proving that the HTC Sense randomly creates Jpg files of websites you have visited and saves them to the phones system folders.

Whats the problem, is that even if you format the entire phone back to factory defaults these images remain on the phone, so if you sold your phone these images would be visibleto anyone who knows their way around HTC Sense.

An image could be of your internet banking statement for example.

HTC will probably move quickly on this with a patch, lets hope so anyway.
