Government malware

Ask yourself this, if the government is able to demand the Anti-malware companies to ‘whitelist’ the government malware. How secure are you against government malware?! There are various examples which show how government malware was used to infect unaware people.

Bundestrojaner

The “Bundestrojaner” or State Trojan in German, is purportedly able to scrape a hard drive looking for data, grab screen shots, insert a program to run or turn on a computer’s microphone and video camera.

German law allows law enforcement to use a Trojan program to monitor Skype type conversations, but nothing else.

So far two separate antivirus companies (Sophos and F-Secure) have verified that the Trojan does exist and that it does what the CCC claims it does, but neither is willing to suggest that there is proof the  is behind its development and/or use.

The Bundestrojaner was discovered by the Computer Chaos Club in Germany.

Known crafted government malware

The governments all around the world want to use malware as this allows them to spy on people, this method provides them a lot of information and additional resources.

The biggest reason why the government would want to use government malware is because of the fact that it can be crafted very fast and it can be cost friendly, if managed right.
