In this article “The LinkedIn mobile app for iOS devices has been discovered sending potentially confidential private and business information to the company servers without the users’ knowledge.

The fact was discovered by Yair Amit and Adi Sharabani, researchers and founders of Skycure Security, who are set to present their findings during a security workshop at Tel Aviv University today.

The feature that allows that to happen concerns calendar syncing and is opt-in, and collects data from all the calendars (private and corporate) on the iOS device.”
