CPJ Internet Channel: For journalists, danger lurking in your email

27 Jul

This week, Morgan Marquis-Bore of the University of
Toronto’s Citizen Lab provided a disturbing
into the likely use of a commercial surveillance program, FinFisher,
to remotely invade and control the computers of Bahraini activists. After the
software installs itself onto unsuspecting users’ computer, it can record and
relay emails, screenshots, and Skype audio conversations. It was deployed
against Bahraini users after being concealed in seemingly innocent emails.
