Critics Claim CISPA Would Authorize Hacking

A controversial cyber-security bill currently making its way through the House would effectively authorize hacking, according to the Center for Democracy and Technology.

In a call with reporters today, CDT said that a provision allowing for cyber-security providers to “use cyber-security systems to identify and obtain cyber threat information to protect the rights and property of such self-protected entity” basically legalizes hacking.
