That's strange to the point of being unbelievable. It's open source, and a project distributed this much is subject to scrutiny from a lot of eyeballs. I'd be surprised if it got away with doing something *that* underhanded. It could be that the people that package the binaries add rogue code, but ZXing seems legit: http://code.google.com/p/zxing/wiki/...AskedQuestions
I'm all for being paranoid with one's info, but can you point me to anything more substantial on this?
