    Police receive powers to hack into your computer

    The Home Office and the EU have given police the power, without the need for a warrant, to hack into anyone's computer. They will do this by sending out emails with keystroke logging software attached or by implanting the software in various well known sites. Kasperskey's suggest that most virus scanning software will foil this endevour, but it all goes to show that we are increasingly becoming governed by a police state.

    According to ComputerActive it is anyone's PC. I suppose that they would have to suspect the person, but who knows since the software will be hidden in websites and will trigger an alarm.

    how long before the government forces antivirus makers to allow their hacks through....

    Hmmm...

    This makes downloading movies a bit

    Ahh wel...

    Yes. This is actually going to happen.

    The police will be inside everyone's PC spying on us all.

    A new word needs to be invented for some people on here to describe someone who is more gullible than the world's most gullible person.

    Don't know where all that came from

    This inf can be found in CompterActive who are reporting from the Home Office, ACPO and Kaspersky. They must all be very gullible I suppose :whistling:

    Until the police and the Home Office publicly announce that they are doing this and will be installing it on everyone's computer, then it's just plain poppycock!

    Yes, they MAY have the power to monitor suspects in organised crime/terrorism etc and that's absolutely fine. But they ARE NOT going to be doing this to average members of the public like me and you.

    If you actually think about the resources needed to monitor 10 people's actions on a PC in a day. Then you realise that the members of the law-abiding public are not going to be affected.

    If you're not doing anything illegal on your PC, why should you worry about this, if it was true!

    Of course, on the other hand................. :roll:

    did an 84 year old woman bet you that you couldnt use that word today?

    while i do agree that word is underused its very "old person like"

    the only other folk i've ever heard use that is my nan and Dave Gorman granted he's young....... but! he does have a ginger beard.

    lol, the Police can't even solve most crimes let alone hack into a computer at a home, through my ISP, through my firewall and then onto my uh oh my Xbox, I may get filed for crimes of a GTA IV related nature.

    hahahaha, lame **** police

    Good point. I think they can see who you are emailing (recipients address) and what time of the day etc...just like they can do with your phonecalls which isnt a big deal really is it? Dont think they can see what your downloading and your emails, unless your a terrorist or suspect of another serious crime (which is obviously a good thing coz they can catch all the scumbags)

    Good point.
    Perhaps they could clear out nasty viruses and fix DLL problems for us BEFORE they actually affect us. :thumbsup:

    Do you think they would charge us for that though.

    I don't know - surrendering your personal (computer's) privacy so that the government can protect it? Sounds just like the justification for ID cards to me.

    Fear my awesome. FEAR IT!



    Feared :-D

    I read this in Computeractive.
    It can't be put on your pc unless the cheif cons of police gives the ok.

    We need a footnote making for our emails like you get from a company say they don't take etc and if you get it deleted, virus checked etc, But to say to our isp's that we don't agree to our mails, surfin monitored etc.

    Any bright sparks out there good with words????

    Yep, I reckon I will be taken off front line duty to spy on peoples computers. Give me a break, as if! We dont have enough resources to get to all the 999 calls as it is.

    Don't knock it you could work from home lol

    siddy, never thought of that, I am now warming to the idea!

    if this does happen wouldnt surprise me if they went after the downloaders/uploaders of music and film rather than peadophiles
