Xiaomi has been doing good in Indian market and have launched their Mi 3 and Redmi 1S and both the smartphones are selling like hot cakes and 600,000 units of 1S are already sold. According to report from IndianExpress the Indian Air Force has issued some warnings and is telling the civilians to stay away from the Xiaomi smartphones.
According to IAF:
F-secure, a leading security solution company, recently carried out a test of Xiaomi Redmi 1S, the company’s budget smartphone, and found that the phone was forwarding carrier name, phone number, IMEI (the device identifier) plus numbers from address book and text messages back to Beijing. IAF

People are also complaining that there devices are connecting with IPs and their photos and personal details are moving into the chinese servers. Earlier this year, F-secure issued the same and after that Xiaomi has issued an patch and said that it had fixed those problems and also provided option regarding the privacy but it looks like there is no benefit of the patch and data are still being hacked.Moon Bounces
