This rule basically gives the FBI power to hack anyone
Last-ditch effort to prevent changes to law enforcement hacking rule fails
Senate fails to stop FBI’s expanded hacking authority. The FBI will have the freedom to hack computers in any jurisdiction.
So much for that bipartisan Senate bid to prevent the FBI from gaining expanded hacking powers. Senators Ron Wyden, Chris Coons and Steve Daines have failed to block changes to the US’ criminal procedure rules (specifically, Rule 41) that would let the FBI hack computers in any jurisdiction provided they have a search warrant. Texas Senator John Cornyn and other Republican leaders thwarted the measure. The rule change should take effect on December 1st, barring surprises.
