It now appears that the UK will follow the lead of the German government in making the creation or distribution of "hacking tools" illegal.
I'm curious---what are your thoughts? Will the US eventually follow suit?
They are not illegal in the UK as long as you don't use it for illegal stuff.
If you do them to pentest with a permission, they are not illegal.
German laws about these tools suck, and yeah I can say that since I am from there.

The legal legislature there is ridiculous. Hearsay (aussage) is counted as evidence, so theoretically all one has to do is accuse someone of an illegal act and 9 times out of 10 the prosecutor (staatsanwalt) will believe it and hand down a harsh sentence.
But then again the some of best beer an automobiles are made there

I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!
Germany and its laws suck...........somebody give me a job in the U.S., and I'll be there..................
Don't eat yellow snow :rolleyes:
A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
If UK go the whole hog, you can be sure US will follow soon after...........
UK & US have been joined at the "political hip" for some years now.......
(That reminds me.......must go check the price of oil )
