Your SMS Messages can come back to haunt you - WYFF-TV asks Phil Yanov

The latest in the Nikki Haley and Will Folks story has been about SMS messages. Just like email before it, SMS messages may feel private when you're sending them, but they are anything but. There are lots of ways they can be intercepted, leaked, inadvertently sent to the wrong parties, and end up posted on the Internet. Tim Waller and Michael Gear of WYFF-TV dropped by the office today to talk about it. Look for the story on the news tonight, and maybe for the next couple of days. What you SMS can hurt you.
