Fan Exploit - Severe Security issue!

There is a security issue with respect to Fan control. There is an exploit that can allow information to be transmitted to an external device ie. "cellphone", "Tablet" etc.. using the accelerometer within those devices and sound. If the fan is set to a single speed without variability this would solve the problem but your computers have no means to do so. This expose's your customer's to a severe Security risk that would allow the theft of sensitive and private information and would make you liable for there losses. Please fix this problem as the systems used are not monitored by any security.
