BackTrack : Giving Machine Guns to Monkeys since 2006
Germany should make Windows illegal. It is after all, the largest carrier of viruses and malware in the world.....
They were among the first in the EU to start penalizing MS for having so many different programs bundled into windows to begin with.

Change the rules .
In France crypto for private usage is not limited, but for society, a declaration is necessary.
I remember Germany and France both advised their citizens to stop using IE and switch to Firefox when the Operation Aurora thing was first revealed. That happened back in January - have they reversed their opinions since then?
I'm curious when that law was changed though, I spoke with my friend about it last night and he travelled relatively close to 2005 (when we first met during a course) and he'd mentioned the crypto thing at that time.
Continuing along the lines of this thread - is anyone familiar with import regulations? I know, for example, that in previous years you couldn't export from the US with certain crypto strengths (and other countries too), so what is taking them in going to set you back for.
Obviously if you get stopped at the border for illegal materials of an adult nature, you get busted for it, but what about software - is it possible to get stopped at the border for possessing a copy of GPG for example - crypto seems to be the main focus of these laws, but the same applies to, say, a copy of Metasploit. I'm also thinking about the author of pyrit asking pureh@te to take his public server offline while he sorted out his anti-hacker-tool laws locally, but I can not for the life of me recall where he lives.
Still not underestimating the power...
There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.
