Legal "Cyber attacks on IT systems would become a criminal offence punishable by at least two years in prison throughout the EU under a draft law backed by the Civil Liberties Committee on Tuesday. Possessing or distributing hacking software and tools would also be an offence, and companies would be liable for cyber attacks committed for their benefit." Wait, what?

I really hope they put together a list of "illegal" hacking tools and keep it up to date. That way I will know which ones to get and study. Funny, I didn't think I would be able to say it was great to live in the USA on a computer tech issue...
