I'm still not sure why this is on full-disclosure, though...
yuh me neither. though i spose it is relevant given the recent trends to
call hackers "terrorists". this kind of legislation is already being used
in the US for hackers. why should au be any different?
And, add top that the taps that many governments wish to install in all
provider NOC's. And the global listening for telecom project (forgot the
name). And the Total Information Awareness program. And the attempts to
outlaw real encryption. And the attempts to outlaw open source. And tons
I cannot think of from the top of my hat :>)
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
