Detekt version 2.0 is out (Jul 28, 2015)

#########################################

- DETEKT

What is Detekt and how does it work?

"Detekt is a free tool that scans your computer for traces of known surveillance spyware used by governments to target and monitor human rights defenders and journalists around the world. By alerting them to the fact that they are being spied on, they will have the opportunity to take precautions.

It was developed by security researchers and has been used to assist in Citizen Lab's investigations into government use of spyware against human rights defenders, journalists and activists as well as by security trainers to educate on the nature of targeted surveillance.

Amnesty International is partnering with Privacy International, Digitale Gesellschaft and the Electronic Frontier Foundation to release Detekt to the public for the first time."

"Why are we releasing a new version of Detekt?

Since its first release last year, some cases have been successfully identified with Detekt. Leaked information from Hacking Team in July 2015 revealed the source code of the current version of Hacking Team RCS[2] - prompting the company to announce it be discontinuing this product and introducing a new version by the end of the year. However, Hacking Team's older software may still remain in use by Hacking Team's customers. We hope that this updated version of Detekt may help to surface new cases of attacks against human rights activists, journalists and others."
