Mumbai to Install Keyloggers on Cafe PCs


The Indian city of Mumbai hopes to fight terrorism by installing keyloggers

All Internet cafes in the Indian city of Mumbai will have police-sanctioned key-logger software installed on their machines to help combat terrorism. With a population of 13 million residents, cafe owners only in the city of Mumbai will be forced to install the software.
All cafe owners will be forced to register and receive a city license from police headquarters, reveal the number of PCs located in the location and Internet protocol (IP) addresses for all of the PCs. Any cafe owners who do not register can be fined, with harsher punishments possible.
The announcement follows bombings in Hyderabad and Mumbai that were reportedly organized in Internet cafes.
"The police needs to install programs that will capture every key stroke at regular interval screen shots, which will be sent back to a server that will log all the data," said Vijay Mukhi, India Foundation for Information Security and Technology president. "The police can then keep track of all communication between terrorists no matter which part of the world they operate from. This is the only way to patrol the net and this is how the police informer is going to look in the e-age," he added.

Privacy experts and bloggers around the world point out different methods criminals can use to remain anonymous. A CNET blog indicates the use of proxy servers and Tor could be two potentially popular methods to get around the keyloggers.

Another way is just stand below any commerical building with your wifi enabled - you should be in business - you will be amazed how many open gateways are out there.

Re: Mumbai to Install Keyloggers on Cafe PCs

What's the point of announcing these initiatives?? If real "terrorists" want to do something they'll simply stay away from cybercafes. I sense something else is the real motive behind this..

(A) Its called "saving face"

(B )- I have personally seen cops trying to shakedown a cyber cafe owner over the rule of maintaining a list of users, even though he is sticking to the rules totally. Even when family uses his machines, he makes an entry in his register - "personal use".

Now they have one more reason for shaking down.

Re: Mumbai to Install Keyloggers on Cafe PCs

^^ *Sigh*... Another fruitless exercise by the Mumbai Police Force. But i know they have the cafe owners on edge. Last time i went to mumbai went to a cybercafe near Bank St and they insisted on some kind of i-card.. had to apologize and quietly walk out.

Its the Rule, the cafe owners have to maintain a register of who used which machine, and they have to verify with an I card, its STUPIDITY.

Even children are turned away, like the baddies dont have any fakes ..

Re: Mumbai to Install Keyloggers on Cafe PCs

What the hell? Pathetic Policing!! Trying to catch terrorist at the expense of people's privacy? I mean, what the hell are they thinking? keyloggers? Some illegal software used by cops? I haven't heard of a legal keylogger ever in my life!! If this was happening in developed countries, then the police would have got it on their face, but alas, this is india where cops take off your monitor but amazingly leave behind the CPU as a method of confistication!! This shows the amount of knowledge, not technical knowledge, the amount of knowledge our lawmakers and cops have! SAD!
