Cyber Security Bills Open Door To Govt, Corporate Abuse

Gunkerty Jeb (1950964) writes "The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is sounding alarms about a collection of overly vague cyber-security bills making their way through Congress.

EFF looked at two bills making their way through Congress: The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (S. 2105), sponsored by Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) of Connecticut and the Secure IT Act (S. 2151), sponsored by Senator John McCain (R-AZ) . The digital rights group claims that the quality of both bills ranges from “downright terrible" to "appropriately intentioned." Each, however, is conceptually similar and flawed, EFF said."
