FORBES – May 20 – Sway appears to have used data from CarbonHire/GeniusHire, which mines sites like Github, Facebook, & LinkedIn for contact info, to send deceptive spam in an attempt to get new users. CarbonHire's database password had recently been compromised. Once installed, Sway crawls contact info on the phone and sends out more invites. The app continues to send notifications even after it's deleted. Sway and CarbonHire have failed to respond to these revelations.
