In the past week a number of major media outlets have been running stories of law enforcement agencies purchasing illicit breach data, presumably for use in investigations. These stories track back to a report in Vice’s Motherboard magazine that names a firm called SpyCloud, which openly advertises collected breach data to these agencies.

SpyCloud has verified that it has (unspecified) law enforcement clients, and mention of the company in several press releases and interviews indicates that the Department of Justice has used it in at least one investigation. The SpyCloud data story raises the specter of an “end run” around due legal process by these agencies, but also raises many more questions about what is actually happening than are answered.

Yeah that's where all the tax payers money's going XD
It could also be used to increase tax revenues. If they can get details on overseas bank accounts, then someone might be found to owe a few million in back taxes...
