spionagesoftware simpel te verkrijgen: pleidooi voor verbod

In Nederland hebben wij internet privacy hoog in het vaandel staan. Soms maken we daarop een uitzondering, zoals de verplichting van providers om telecomgegevens te bewaren, bijvoorbeeld om de politie in staat te stellen misdrijven op te lossen maar zelfs dat mag niet meer sinds het Europese Hof van Justitie dat op 8 april jongstleden verboden heeft. De reden was onder andere dat de richtlijn die het ministerie van justitie ontwikkeld had om te voorkomen dat onbevoegden inzage zouden krijgen in de gegevens niet waterdicht zou zijn.

Natuurlijk weten we dat er toch afgeluisterd wordt, de NSA is erom berucht en andere geheime diensten doen het ongetwijfeld ook maar dit zijn tenminste nog enigszins officiële instanties. Daarnaast zou het me niet verbazen als internetcriminelen software ontwikkeld hebben om mensen af te kunnen luisteren: ook niet leuk en uiteraard illegaal maar nu word ik geconfronteerd met software die iedereen in staat stelt om anderen af te luisteren en verder alles te volgen wat iemand met zijn mobiele telefoon doet.

Ik ben er niet achter gekomen door een geheime website te hacken, ik zou niet weten hoe dat zou moeten en als ik dat zou weten dan zou ik wel gek zijn om het te doen. Nee, ik kwam erachter doordat ik het interessant vind om een aantal websites in de gaten te houden waar dagelijks gratis software aangeboden wordt. Het is me overigens onduidelijk of de betreffende software inderdaad gratis is, de normale kostprijs is $69,=.

Ik heb er over getwijfeld of ik er goed aan zou doen de betreffende link hier te vermelden en ik denk dat ik dat in dit kader maar beter wel kan doen, al was het alleen maar om duidelijk te maken dat ik niet zomaar wat beweer:

Ik ben geen jurist maar het kan niet anders dan dat het gebruik van dergelijke software in Nederland illegaal is. Of het aanbieden ervan eveneens illegaal is: dit weet ik niet maar dat het bijzonder ongepast is om zulke software überhaupt aan te bieden: dit lijkt me duidelijk.

Ik vind het bijzonder verontrustend dat het momenteel praktisch gezien geen probleem is om dergelijke software in bezit te krijgen en ik hoop dat, door dit aan te kaarten, er een maatschappelijke discussie ontstaat die ertoe zal leiden dat het aanbieden van dit soort programma's binnenkort niet meer mogelijk is.

Aan de ene kant kan ik begrip opbrengen voor het feit dat de redactie besloten heeft de link naar de website te verwijderen, kennelijk wil men niet het risico lopen dat het verwijzen naar de link een strafbaar feit is onder het Nederlandse recht. Aan de andere kant: de website waarnaar ik verwees (en ik heb inmiddels verschillende websites gevonden waar de software wordt aangeboden) bevat wel essentiële informatie als het gaat om de ernst van de spionageactiviteiten die met behulp van het programma mogelijk zijn. Deze gaan namelijk veel verder dan het alleen maar afluisteren van mobiele telefoons. Ik vind dat het monopolie op dergelijke spionagepraktijken bij de staat en de beveiligingsdiensten hoort te liggen en dat die slechts van dergelijke spionagepraktijken gebruik mogen maken als daar zeer goede redenen voor zijn, ik denk bijvoorbeeld aan het oplossen of voorkomen van zware misdrijven.

Nu de informatie in de link niet langer voor de lezers op GratisSoftware beschikbaar is denk ik er goed aan te doen om deze hieronder in gecensureerde vorm weer te geven. De censuur bestaat eruit dat ik de naam van de softwarefabrikant heb verwijderd en er geen enkele verwijzing meer in te vinden is hoe de betreffende software te verkrijgen is. Het gaat mij er alleen om om op indringende wijze duidelijk te maken wat er mogelijk is op het gebied van het schenden van de privacy van burgers en dat er op het internet op legale wijze software te verkrijgen is om elke burger in staat te stellen om zich aan dergelijke privacyschendingen schuldig te maken. Ik vind dat de lezers recht hebben op deze informatie en hoop dat de redactie de inhoud dit keer verder ongemoeid wil laten. De fabrikant beschrijft de mogelijkheden van zijn product als volgt:
