Next lost piece of privacy and democracy battle

Posted July 4th, 2008 by konrad

As reported yesterday, the German province Bavaria officially gave the police the right to use tools to scan computers of potential criminals starting from August 1st (the media call these tools “Bundestrojaner” – ferderal Trojan horse – in this case “Bayerntrojaner” – Bavarian Trojan horse). Looks really like another chapter of “We lost the war” and there have been already too many of those in the last time. I am pretty sure the salami-slice strategy will work here very well and very soon we will have not only the Bayerntrojaner but finally the Bundestrojaner. Unfortunately most people don’t bother as they don’t see the implications and danger of the potential abuse of these tools and practices.
