There is a TV News report on the website of TV Station WTHR in Indianapolis. You can do a google search for "bob segall wthr cell phone spyware" Bob Segall is the reporter, and the 1.5st result links to the story and video. (Not the 1st or 2nd/3rd link)
I would post the link here, but since I only signed on to make this post, I will have top post 9 more responses before getting the privilege to post web or email addresses - according to Site Point. Sorry.
There is a video link of the 5 minute news story on the right. You can watch it on that page. Also read the story because it has an update about some related things.
I have found websites for most of companies mentioned. Some of them offer solutions to prevent the software they sell infecting your phone. Clever - playing both sides.
There are also a few resources doing investigations into this abuse, but no simple solutions were offered in the story - only a 6 O'Clock news type of RUN FOR YOUR LIFE WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE warning.
I got to this SitePoint thread by searching for programs that might detect the problem you are encountering, but since I was here, I thought I'd answer your question before continuing.
I hope you solve your problem.
