FBI has now got the power to hack any computer in the world with the help of a warrant from a U.S. judge. This new ruling was recently made by the U.S. Supreme Court. As expected, this change has attracted lots opposition from privacy advocacy groups and tech companies like Google

According to the latest rule change approved by The U.S. Supreme Court, now a U.S. judges can issue a search warrant to the FBI to hack any computer located in any jurisdiction.

This order has come despite the fact that civil liberties group were opposing the new rule, calling it an enormous increase in the FBI’s hacking power.

The new rules have now been transmitted to the Congress, which can modify or reject the changes until December 1. If the Congress decides to leave the new rule untouched, it’ll take effect automatically. It should be noted that Congress rarely exercises its powers.

This rule change was being pushed by the U.S. Justice Department since 2013. The Department called it a little change that was needed to modernize the criminal code for the new digital age.

The privacy advocacy groups and technology giants like Google have called the new changes unreasonable that’ll allow the FBI to hack millions of devices with a single warrant. The privacy groups also call it a blatant violation of people’s constitutional right against search and seizure.

It’s interesting to note that this quest of the Justice Department to gain more powers hasn’t attracted the level of attention received by the tussle between Apple and FBI.
