+ - Bavaria Confesses To German State Trojan – S-> 2

Submitted by clickforfreepizza
clickforfreepizza (2465094) writes "News on the German "state trojan" analyzed by the CCC:



[The] Bavarian Interior Minister [confirmed] that state officials had indeed used the software, but argued that the use had been conducted legally.

[...]

[A] lawyer said his client had had the software in question installed on his computer during a customs check.

That software, which could be legally used for monitoring telecommunications, had been altered to allow it to grab screen shots.

The H's sister reports (German) this case involves nothing like terrorism, but legal substances which "may become" illegal when exported.

The Bavarian press release (German) also says the code analyzed by the CCC might be an earlier test version."
