German Federal Criminal Police to Use Interim Surveillance Software

According to a confidential document that has been leaked to the Internet, the German Federal Criminal Police Office, the Bundeskriminalamt (BKA), has purchased surveillance software that will reportedly be used until the organization's custom surveillance software is ready for use. The software uses a Trojan horse program to record Internet telephony conversations prior to their encryption from the sender or after their decryption on the recipient's device.
