Security issue in current version of Cisco Jabber for Mac

Cisco JabberCurrent versions of the Jabber for Mac client do track your activity with Google Analytics. This includes starting/ending an IM session, call metadata etc.

This behavior is currently not documented and Cisco does not provide settings in CUCM as it does for the iOS clients.

However, there is a client setting you can set to disable Google Analytics tracking. Open terminal and type:

defaults write com.cisco.Jabber ARXUserDefaultsDisableAnalyticsKey -bool YES

You need to restart your Jabber Client to make this work.

Special thanks to https://twitter.com/ingochao for contacting Cisco security. BTW, the Cisco Mac development unit announced that a later version of the client will stop using Google Analytics.
