“could potentially launch a ‘root exploit’ attack to take control of your phone” - Dr. Xuxian Jiang Ads use GPS, call logs, phone numbers, list of apps. App may be harmless, but “the app’s ad library may download harmful or invasive code after installation.”
1. The ethical issue is that these ad libraries might harm mobile devices. 2. The app user doesn’t want their mobile device harmed. The app maker doesn’t want to harm your mobile device. The ad maker wants to harm your mobile device. 3. Solution 1: No ads Solution 2: App makers choose ads Solution 3: Google & Apple provide ad-isolation mechanisms (best)
4. Solution 3 is best for all ethical parties involved, and every ad should be looked at. 5. This solution would be effective and not farfetched. It is equally balanced between excessive and deficient. 6. The majority of the people involved would choose this solution.
7.I feel most committed to this solution in my own conscience even though it does affect me. This choice was autonomous and without the influence of others. 8.This follows the Realist philosophy because this solution allows ads to be what they naturally are.
This ethical issue violates the following ACM Code guidelines: 1. (1.2) Avoid harm to others. 2. (1.3) Be honest and trustworthy. 3. (1.7) Respect the privacy of others. 4. (1.8) Honor confidentiality.
