Carnivore sucks.

Carnivore sucks. You think so, but did you know that Steve Bellovin, Matt Blaze, Peter G Neumann and Gene Spafford agree with you? Along with David Farber from UPenn, they were asked to identify specific areas of concern by the Chief Scientist at Justice for review by a team from the Illinois Institute or Technology's Research Insititute. They weren't real impressed with the quality of the report that team returned.

Cool. Hopefully the gov't will get a clue that this thing is a steaming piece of shit. Maybe.

Nah, leave it as a POS. If it's flawed, use of it will be thrown out of courts with a reliable technical witness.

The researchers noted that Carnivore relies on "PC Anywhere"

That's just funny.
