The Feds join in:
The US House of Representatives got busy recently doing something other than trying to grandstand on gas prices or illegal aliens, when Sensenbrenner introduced HR 5318
, the Cyber-Security Enhancement and Data Protection Act, which doesn't even have a funny acronym. The bill will make it a federal offense to use a botnet or otherwise access a computer without authorization to obtain identification information. Any computer "affecting" interstate or international commerce would be protected, and RICO would apply.
