Australian Police Allowed To Install Spyware On Your Computer
from the what-about-adware? dept
The latest, slightly bizarre, plan down in Australia is that police should have the right to install spyware and trojan horses on your computer — though many think that now that this is legal, most criminals who the police would use it on will simply increase their own computer security to make sure no spyware or trojans reside on their machines. So, for all the attention this is getting, it might not actually matter at all. However, if police want to take credit for teaching the criminal community the importance of better computer security, they should feel free.
