From Amnesty International:

A new tool to enable journalists and human rights defenders to scan their computers for known surveillance spyware has been released today by Amnesty International and a coalition of human rights and technology organizations.

Detekt is the first tool to be made available to the public that detects major known surveillance spyware, some of which is used by governments, in computers.


Developed by security researcher Claudio Guarnieri, Detekt is being launched in partnership with Amnesty International, Digitale Gesellschaft, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Privacy International.
