The Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has recently received a newer version of the "Staatstrojaner", a government spyware. The comparison with the older version, already analyzed by the CCC with the actual Sniffer-code from December 2010, revealed new evidence. Despite the claims of the responsible parties, the Trojan can still be remote-controlled, loaded with any code and also the allegedly "revision-proof logging" can be manipulated. The CCC is calling for a complete waiver of Trojans in pre-trial investigations.
Der Chaos Computer Club (CCC) nimmt den Quellenschutz und die Hackerethik ernst. Dieses Addendum beschreibt die Positionen in der veröffentlichten Version von einem der uns zugespielten Staatstrojaner, an denen Daten modifiziert wurden, um die genaue Herkunft der Programme zu verschleiern.
The largest European hacker club, "Chaos Computer Club" (CCC), has reverse engineered and analyzed a "lawful interception" malware program used by German police forces. It has been found in the wild and submitted to the CCC anonymously. The malware can not only siphon away intimate data but also offers a remote control or backdoor functionality for uploading and executing arbitrary other programs. Significant design and implementation flaws make all of the functionality available to anyone on the internet.
