Re: social media data hoovering is an obvious security risk
GnuTzu, you've hit the nail on the head. This is not unique to mobile devices by any stretch. There are lists of approved applications allowed in all USDoD environments (and for other US government agencies) with all others being banned by default. The reporting on this has pretty much missed this both here and in other outlets. Same for users who confuse their government issued devices with personal property or try to pull rank to get what they want because. As long as there are restrictions, there will be people who think they do not apply to them.
