The US House of Representatives has just passed the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, which is intended to safeguard the US against "cyber threats", however, this one is pretty vague and broad, and could give government and military intelligence agencies the ability to inspect private data without the use of warrants!
This one, will also need to pass the Senate before it would reach the president’s desk. The good news is that, apparently, the Obama administration has already strongly opposed CISPA...
All we can do is wait... and oppose it just like with SOPA and PIPA!
