German spyware plans trigger row

Reported by BBC, 31.08.2007
German government plans to spy on terror suspects by distributing malicious e-mails have drawn sharp criticism.
The e-mails would contain Trojans - software that secretly installs itself on suspects' computers, allowing agents to search the hard drives.
German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble is quoted as saying the spyware would be used only in a few cases and for a limited time.
