The My Verizon Mobile app was updated in the last day or two. I only noticed because it now needs camera control permissions, which seems really bizarre and a bit spooky to me. But whatever, I can use xprivacy to stop that.

But after making a phone call, the app is also requesting root privileges from SuperSU! That seems terribly sketchy. I've frozen the app with Titanium Backup for now.

I'm not normally a paranoid guy, but this makes me awfully suspicious. Any ideas what's going on here?

There are numerous reviews on the Play store noting these things, and no explanation from Verizon. I have to wonder if they or Google were compromised by heartbleed, and if this could be something malicious.
