How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Justice Department Seeks Permission to Hack, Search Remote Computers

It used to be the bad guys who hacked computers.

But now law enforcement is resorting to the same trickery to search remote computers for investigations.

The request has worried digital rights groups who said the hacking is intrusive and may violate the Fourth Amendment protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures.
