FBI required to report on e-mail wiretaps

Author: JT Smith

PCWorld: "The U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure on Monday that would require the Federal Bureau of Investigation to report
how it uses the controversial e-mail wiretap system formerly known as Carnivore.

Although the bill places no restrictions on how the FBI could use its monitoring system, now known as DCS1000, it would require
the federal law-enforcement agency to provide a detailed report every year on how it was used." Big whoop.
