Dutch Minister of Security’s plan starts digital arms race

An interesting article: http://www.computerworlduk.com/news/security/3406221/dutch-government-let-law-enforcement-hack-foreign-computers/

Dutch Minister of Security and Justice Ivo Opstelten outlined the government’s plan to draft a bill in upcoming months that would provide law enforcement authorities with new investigative powers on the internet. 

The proposed legislation would create an incentive for governments to keep software vulnerabilities secret because they would need to exploit those vulnerabilities to attack systems used by cybercriminals, van Daalen said.

My comment is Dutch are only doing it publicly!!
