Hi Nikola

My excuses if I didn't send the report sooner. Indeed I just did and I have
to gather some info on the device. As I user I'm clueless what kind of
information should I provide, but I guess the logs as the report was send
will do this, right? Let me know if this is the case.

I'll attempt install and uninstall.

Keep in mind this is no former test but just blogging about my experience
as an user and experimenting a little, by no means people reading the blog
should see this as a former QA testing procedures or the similar.

Basically I'll install malware on this device, one that will be under a
controlled environment attempting to send info to the C&C

I'll sniff the communication and check how does the project protect me
against this type of attacks to the phone,what kind of warnings are given,
basically report my user experience.
