Feds want an expanded ability to hack criminal suspects' computers

Advocatus Diaboli (1627651) writes | about 7 months ago


Advocatus Diaboli (1627651) writes "What could go wrong?

"The U.S. Department of Justice is pushing to make it easier for law enforcement to get warrants to hack into the computers of criminal suspects across the country. The move, which would alter federal court rules governing search warrants, comes amid increases in cases related to computer crimes. Investigators say they need more flexibility to get warrants to allow hacking in such cases, especially when multiple computers are involved or the government doesn’t know where the suspect’s computer is physically located.""
