CyberCrime Treaty Draft
Looks like support for our position is already underway.... -mike http://www.techweb.com/wire/story/reuters/REU20000516S0007 Net Industry Wary About New Cybercrime Rules (05/16/00, 11:16 a.m. ET) By Reuters ---snip------------------Philippe Lemaire, an executive at CF6, Nanterre, France, said computer security companies like CF6 are concerned about a passage in the Council of Europe draft that would ban hacking software used to test corporate computer security systems. "That would present a big hurdle for us," Lemaire said. "If you can't do these tests, you deprive companies of an important tool." He said more and more hackers are already getting caught without any new laws being passed or new technology being used to combat them.
