Reno Probes FBI's "Carnivore" Email Monitoring System

Share this content:

The Carnivore system is placed on an Internet service provider and it scans all incoming and outcoming e-mails, reading both sender and recipient addresses, as well the subject lines of e-mails, to decide whether to make a copy of the entire message.
