    Green lantern

    I heard that the CIA or FBI was devolping this one key logger called green lantern and Is going to start using it becouse of the recent anti-terror laws passed. Anyone heard about this?

    I have heard about this in several mags. The main problem with them using it is they must get a warrant and also must obtain physical access to the computers so they can install the program. Sounds mighty risky to me.

    but how would they get the results of what the "terrorists" are sending? If they had a GOOD firewall, it wud detect an outgoing connection attempt.

    the feds have already used this in calif. on a mob guy. the info frrom green lantren was introduced as evidince, no warrents were used. unfortunatly the defendant changed his plea to guilty, so the constitutionality of it all is still untested.

    zdnet had an article on it a few weels ago. they stated that a warrent was not always necessary, i forget exactly how it was stated, if the fbi had resonable suspicion, or some such ****.

    MAGIC LANTERN installs so-called “keylogging” software on a suspect’s machine that is capable of capturing keystrokes typed on a computer. By tracking exactly what a suspect types, critical encryption key information can be gathered, and then transmitted back to the FBI, according to the source, who requested anonymity.
    The virus can be sent to the suspect via e-mail — perhaps sent for the FBI by a trusted friend or relative. The FBI can also use common vulnerabilities to break into a suspect’s computer and insert Magic Lantern, the source said.
