+ - Kismac development discontinued due to German law.->

Submitted by BDaniels
BDaniels (13031) writes "Kismac is an excellent wireless sniffer app for OSX. The original developers announced today that they are ceasing development due to upcoming changes in German law that will make it illegal to possess this sort of 'hacking tool':

"German laws change and are being adapted for "better" protection against something politicians obviously do not understand. It will become illegal to develop, use or even posses KisMAC in this banana republic (backgound: the change of 202c StGB)."

They are asking for others outside Germany to take over the code and continue development."
