Oh man, what a shame, Italy\u2019s Hacking Team had its global export license revoked, and now it can\u2019t sell its spyware outside of Europe without getting special approval.It hasn't even been a year since the Hacking Team became the Hacked Team, but after being owned, the company apparently didn\u2019t crawl off and die. The Hacking Team\u2019s newest woes, which were first reported by the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano, means the company can\u2019t easily conduct business as usual by selling its Remote Control Software to just anyone who wants it.The Italian newspaper reported that the Hacking Team can\u2019t sell outside the EU without jumping legal hoops for the following 46 countries: Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, Chile, Colombia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Israel, India, Iraqi Kurdistan, Jordan, Japan, South Korea, Kuwait, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Morocco, Mongolia, Mexico, Malaysia, Nigeria, Oman, Peru, the Philippines, Paraguay, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, the United States, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.Help Net Security reported that sources within the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) claimed the Hacking Team had previously been granted authorization on April 3, 2015, to sell to those countries after \u201can evaluation by the Advisory Committee for the Export of Dual-use Goods deemed the list of countries \u2018consistent with the public interest at that time.\u2019\u201dThe same committee now revoked the authorization \u2013 two years before it would expire, on April 30, 2018 \u2013 by offering the following explanation: \u201cThe authorization is not in the public interest anymore.\u201dHacking Team CEO David Vincenzetti, who is reportedly \u201cunder investigation for some of the deals he has made on foreign soil,\u201d told Il Fatto Quotidiano that not all of the 46 countries listed in the document are really its trading partners, yet he wouldn\u2019t provide a list of countries that are buyers of its surveillance malware.Sadly, Hacking Team spokesperson Eric Rabe doesn\u2019t foresee any problems obtaining permission on a country-by-country basis. He told Forbes, \u201cThe global license has been suspended by MISE but Hacking Team still has approvals for all countries within the EU, and the company expects to be given approvals for sales to countries outside the EU as well as needed. The investigation regarding David Vincenzetti seems to be a review of past sales, all of which were conducted in accordance with laws and regulations in place when the sales were made.\u201dThe Hacking Team refers to their products such as Galileo as \u201clawful intercept\u201d technology sold to government and law enforcement agencies. The company claimed that it didn\u2019t sell to blacklisted countries or those that \u201cfacilitate gross human rights abuses.\u201d Really? Reporters without Borders has labeled the Hacking Team as an enemy of the Internet, and Citizenlab \u201cmapped the Hacking Team\u2019s untraceable spyware.\u201d It sure did look like Hacking Team sold their spyware to repressive regimes.
