Andreaskem writes "Bavarian police searched the home of the mouth for the German Pirate Party (Piratenpartei Deutschland) looking for an informant who leaked scoop about a oversight Trojan used to eavesdrop on Skype conversations. (The link is a Google translation of the German original.) There is a high probability that the Trojan is used illegally. A illegal law specialist said, 'The Bavarian front office* worked on the Trojan without a legitimate basis and now try to silence critics.' The informant need not worry since 'every network that could be used to make out him' is protected against unauthorized access by strong encryption. The Trojan is supposedly capable of eavesdropping on Skype conversations and obtaining unconscious details of the Skype client being used. It is deployed by e-mail or in place by the police.
