Canada’s ‘super secret spy agency’ is releasing a malware-fighting tool to the public

Canada’s electronic spy agency says it is taking the “unprecedented step” of releasing one of its own cyber defence tools to the public, in a bid to help companies and organizations better defend their computers and networks against malicious threats.

How stupid do they think we are? Can you say ‘back door’?

    A company I do work for already told it’s employes not to install it on any company computers.

      This isn’t how they come at ya. It’s overdue, and likely in earnest. That said, if it’s got much in common with most .gc.ca software it’ll crash…in French.

    Yeah, hate to be all conspiracy theory, but it’s not like it’s without reason at this point.

    Trust your government spy agency? They take us for fools.

    Running about a dozen computers in my house there is no way this is going on any of them. I have no doubt that the Canadian spy agency is able to read what I send and what I have on my hard drive (if it is connected to the internet); but why make it easy?
