OMFG: The FBI installs spyware to search online

As you hear.

The mighty and omnipresent FBI is installing ”’spyware”’ to search on line.

Get familiar with this term: CIPAV, which stands for: Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier, we are going to hear a lot of this.

Since four years ago there’s have been a rumor that the FBI was installing ”’secretly”’ software on  computers. Some ”’conspiracy-theory”’ lovers say that even our emails are being ”’scanned”’ for certain ”’words”’. Whatever.

The case is that the FBI has run an investigation  using the CIPAV tool to track a ”’bomber”’.
