Came across this in the news section of one of my security software apps...
Is malware still malware if it’s used by legal authorities to track down criminals? How about when it’s used by governmental agencies to monitor citizens’ computers and keep an eye on political dissent? Is it malware if it’s sold by a legitimate software development company and marketed strictly for use in instances of lawful interception? What if there are currently no clear-cut, legal guidelines to determine exactly what lawful interception is? New research from University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab begs all of these questions, and reveals that present-day Internet activity monitoring technology is much more comprehensive, affordable, and user-friendly than any Big-Brother-fearing netizen had ever feared or thought.
