State Trojans against criminal trading platforms
The Bundestag is taking much more stringent action against the sale of narcotics, weapons, counterfeit money, depictions of child sexual abuse, forged ID cards and stolen credit card data on criminal trading platforms on the Internet. Anyone who operates such a marketplace faces a prison sentence of up to five years or a fine in the future. Up to ten years imprisonment is provided for commercial activities. There is also a wide toolbox for law enforcement officers. In the case of commercial activities, investigators can use it to monitor the telecommunications of suspects and the servers used and use state Trojans for clandestine online searches. In the future there is also a threat of a sentence of up to two years in prison for “inciting insults” with which the human dignity of others is attacked.
