Thousands of Apple and Google mobile applications were found to contain computer code developed by a Russian software company disguised as a U.S. company, Reuters reports. The apps, including some used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Army, were made by Pushwoosh.

The code allows developers "to profile the online activity of smartphone app users.”
