FBI Given Powers To Hack Any Device

The US Supreme Court has given a fatal blow to the tech world and its companies after passing regulations which entitle the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to be able to hack into computers. The powers will be essentially useful in cases where there has been a cyber crime, and they need powers to hack into phones. The new rules will also give the FBI to enter the victims phones, and the legislation will take effect from December this year, that is unless the Congress, both lower and upper, decide to make up contesting legislation.

Under previous federal rules that were in force which pertained to criminal proceedings, a magistrate judge could not just issue out a search warrant unless the authorities knew where the computer or mobile device in question was. This was due to the jurisdiction matter which would come into effect.
“FBI can now hack any computer anywhere in the world – whenever they want”

The new rule change, which was sent to Congress as soon as it was passed, however, allows a magistrate to issue out a search warrant regardless of where the device is and whether the know about its whereabouts or not. In most cases the location pf the device would not be known because most cyber criminals used cloaking techniques and methods such as the Tor browser. Over a million are known to use the location distorting browser for legit reasons to browse Facebook and other internet related social networks, but in those one million, there are also some bad crooks.

Privacy advocates and activists who have been following the news are concerned about the intrusion that will follow. One of the advocates, Kevin Bankston, director of Open Technology Institute, said in a press release that no matter how the FBI tried to block and sugar coat what they will be doing is simply government hacking. He said, ‘whether the FBI changes it to remote access search or network investigative technique, the issue was still that it boils down to hacking. And thanks to the rule change there would be a lot more of it now.

One visiting professor at the University of California Hastings Law School, Ahmed Ghappour, said the law change was “possibly the broadest expansion of extraterrestrial surveillance power since the FBIs beginning.”

The Supreme Court judgement also allows the FBI to hack into computers that have already been hacked. Botnet hacked computers are some of the most common whereby they allow hackers to take over and spread spam and distribute viruses through many zombie innocent computers.

What Our Customers Say About Us

R3 Data Recovery, from first enquiry phone-call with Will to returning my fully recovered HD data by courier, they were impeccable. They were really faultless. They recovered my data sooner than arranged, they kept me informed and updated at every stage. There was no hard sell, no nasty surprises, they told me the prices upfront and sent emails to confirm this. They honoured the original quoted price. They were just a joy to work with! I was so impressed!! I’ve already recommended them to a friend who has a damaged SD card.

I’m an extremely happy & relieved bunny right now. R3 Data solved a problem Apple was arbitrarily charging me around £2000 to sort and the high street recovery shops were clueless about. One high street data recovery shop claimed they could fix my hard-drive, kept it for 3 days, didn’t fix it then still charged me £105 to get my laptop back.

Seriously!! Try R3 data. I mean, they even send a courier to pick up you HD from where-ever you are.
