Fluffeh writes "Congressmen are trying to see if they can sneak an absolutely awful "cybersecurity" bill through Congress. It appears that the Rogers-Ruppersberger bill, known as CISPA (for Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) or HR 3523 is winning out, with a planned attempt to move it through Congress later this month. Pushing that this isn't a SOPA type act, supporters are highlighting that Microsoft and Facebook are amoung the 100 or so sponsors. However, many, including the CDT are strongly opposed to the bill: "However, the bill goes much further, permitting ISPs to funnel private communications and related information back to the government without adequate privacy protections and controls. The bill does not specify which agencies ISPs could disclose customer data to, but the structure and incentives in the bill raise a very real possibility that the National Security Agency or the DOD’s Cybercommand would be the primary recipient.
