    And here we go again....

    The U.S. House passed the controversial (and revamped) 'cybersecurity' bill CISPA in 288-127 vote, despite privacy shortcomings and promised veto.

    The US House of Representatives has once again passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which died in the Senate last year, by a margin of 288 to 127 after two days of debate.

    If you didn't know, the legislation would grant companies broad legal immunity when they share information related to online threats with one another and with the federal government...

    Anyway, as was the case the year before, this week the Obama administration issued a promise to veto the bill if it reaches the president’s desk without significant changes...

    So, let's see what happens in the next few weeks. For more info about CISPA, you can check out HERE.
