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?

Hacking tool? What's more of a hacking tool than a computer?

So, we can't use telnet anymore? GNU/Linux? Firefox/Chrome? You-name-it?

What a lousy attempt to stop hackers.
