Submission + - German Justice Minister speaks of government spywa (

gzipped_tar writes: In an interview by Severin Weiland of Spiegel Online, German Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger talks about the spyware from the German government recently dissected by the Chaos Computer Club. Having met with the CCC, she admits that the affair is "a very real possibility of a significant disaster." Apparently, the spyware scandal has brought new political impetus for her Free Democratic Party, self-labeled as "an energetic guardian of the private sphere", but she is careful in the choice of words not to offend the governing coalition. On the Pirate Party, she says "[they] has certainly enlivened things", referring to the civil right issues.
