It's usually send to the target (after a specific authorization granted by a prosecutor) as an e-mail attachment called "Querela" ("Complaint"), and this is his common name.
The news leaked as one of the targets was Luigi Bisignani (defined by PM Berlusconi as "a man a lot more powerful than me"); it seems that it intercepts the audio card, to simply bypass Skype (Bisignani used Skype a lot to avoid wiretapping).
IIRC, there was a lot of irritation between prosecutors for the leaking of this news.
