That's one heck of a 'bug'

from here (source article)

There's a lot of things going on in the description of this bug, and frankly, I wonder how much of it is actually unintended. The app is sending photos (or entire albums) to a contact chosen seemingly at random at a time when the phone isn't being used and no trace of the sent message is left behind. That seems like an awfully well hidden 'bug'.

 It's certainly not unheard of for people in privileged positions to misuse their position for personal gain. I wonder if perhaps the only accidental part of this is how the recipient is selected.
