First Georgia, now the UK

Posted by Xavier Ashe on May 25, 2006

It looks like the United Kingdom is weighing a law that could possibly criminalise the practices of Computer Security Pros.
From the article at ZDNet:

The
Police and Justice Bill will update the UK's existing Computer Misuse
Act (CMA), bringing in new powers to address the rise of organised
cybercriminals and offences such as denial-of-service attacks. It was
passed by the House of Commons earlier this month, and will be
considered by the House Of Lords over the next couple of months.

Sounds pretty harmless, right?

WRONG!

Read the whole article by Security Monkey.  The Georgia bill did get vetoed, so lets support our friends in the UK and help block this bill.
