The government trojan “Bundestrojaner” will open its source code

Carrumba writes that he has received permission to publish the source code of the Bundestrojaner.

This trojan horse was built under contract from the Swiss government, and among other things, it was one of the first pieces of malware that could listen in on Skype calls.

It will be very interesting to see this. As Carrumba writes, it will finally confirm (or put an end to) the rumors that were going around back when the Bundestrojaner was first released. It will be a chance for anyone “who is also curious what the root of all the rumours was” to see just that.
