Remember the Carrier IQ scandal?

I went into Shortcuts/Activities/Android System on my I9195 (serranoltexx, MH2 with region code PHN = Netherlands) and found this (screenshot attached).

Maybe Carrier IQ on unbranded S4 minis is just a dormant piece of code. But maybe it is sending out data undetected (it is a rootkit). And even if it doesn't do anything yet, you never know what may trigger this junk in the future.

Most apps that are supposed to detect Carrier IQ didn't catch it, but Disable Carrier IQ Mod found it. It won't remove it, though.

Anyone know how to kick it out of my S4 mini, short of flashing a custom ROM?
