Legal basis for the use of vulnerabilities by law enforcement in the UK

Hi all,

As I'm from a different jurisdiction and had a hard time finding the actual legal basis I was wondering whether someone could point me in the right direction. Does anyone know what the legal basis is (the law and perhaps the provision) that allows police and intelligence agencies to conduct technical reconnaissance, exploit a known vulnerability or even create one. Any of you have a good paper (from a legal point of view) on the warrant regime concerning this topic?

I'm grateful for your replies.
