t's one of the most powerful tools in the black hat arsenal, capable of delivering thousands of fresh victims into a hackers' clutches within minutes. Now the technique is being adopted by a different kind of a hacker-the kind with a badge. For the last two years, the FBI has been quietly experimenting with drive-by hacks as a solution to one of law enforcement's knottiest Internet problems: how to identify and prosecute users of criminal websites hiding behind the powerful Tor anonymity system.

The California Assembly has passed a bill that would require law enforcement agencies to obtain a warrant before using a surveillance drone as part of a criminal investigation.

In addition, public agencies other than law enforcement have to give the public reasonable notice that they plan to deploy a surveillance drone and describe its capabilities.
