Seems that Grmany has some major issues woth internet security:

A German hacker organization claims to have cracked spying software allegedly used by German authorities. The Trojan horse has functions which go way beyond those allowed by German law. The news has sparked a wave of outrage among politicians and media commentators.

So, what is this software? It is s trojan horse:

So-called Trojan horse software can be surreptitiously delivered by a harmless-looking e-mail and installed on a user's computer without their knowledge, where it can be used to, for example, scan the contents of a hard drive. In 2007, the German Interior Ministry announced it had designed a Trojan horse that could be used to search the hard drives of terror suspects.

Not only that. This software can also use your webcam and mike to spy on you! Everything this software does is against the German Constitution.

The full artice is here:
