    I did a search and didn't see this covered. There appears to be some reports of certain flashlight apps that may contain "info stealing" malware. I don't know the validity of the reports but snopes.com did say this claim was part false and part true.

    Since the iPhone has it's own flashlight utility I think it's wise to just stick with that rather than using an app. Here's the broadcast that I saw on youtube. Take it for what it's worth AND always do your own research.
