Sweden: Police develop their own spyware

Yes and police spyware: Its police ς ανακοίνωσε νέες τεχνικές για την καταπολέμηση του εγκλήματος αυτή την εβδομάδα. Μία από αυτές είναι και η δυνατότητα ανάπτυξης υποκλοπής spyware σε συσκευές ύποπτων.

That particular will aim to intercept encrypted communications and activate microphones and .spyware

The decision was announced by Swedish Interior Minister Mikael Damberg at a press conference on Tuesday 22 October.

The new technical capabilities that the Swedish police will acquire are part of an 34 plan for upgrading law enforcement powers to investigate gangs or violent crimes.

Damberg said that providing these techniques to the police to stop encrypted communications was one of the top priorities, as they could not attend criminal groups that frequently use services like Signal and WhatsApp to coordinate their operations.

According to ZDNet the minister told the local press [1, 2, 3, 4] that 90% of all communications that the police have tried to intercept for investigations in recent years have been encrypted.

Spyware αντί για backdoors στην

But unlike countries like Australia, where the local government has passed a law forcing technology companies to take back encryption, Swedish police will take a different route - also known as the German route.

More than a decade ago, the German authorities began developing a malicious software called Federal trojan (Federal ).

Το σχέδιο της αστυνομίας της Σουηδίας είναι παρόμοιο αφού σχεδιάζει να αναπτύξει κακόβουλα προγράμματα με δυνατότητες spyware σε συσκευές ύποπτων. Αυτό θα τους βοηθήσει να ακούνε κρυπτογραφημένες κλήσεις ήχου ή να βλέπουν βίντεο σε πραγματικό χρόνο. Θα μπορούν επίσης να εξάγουν αρχεία καταγραφής συνομιλιών από κρυπτογραφημένες instant messages.

How the Swedish authorities will achieve this is not known, but there are at least two routes. They can create the malware themselves or buy it from third parties. The latter option is also the most popular with law enforcement agencies around the world and there is a growing market of companies selling hacking as legitimate surveillance tools, in law enforcement agencies.

The new features are expected to take effect on 1 in March of 2020. According to Damberg, the police will only be able to use them if the crime is worthy of a punishment of four years or more.
