Cyber liberties group sound alarm over anti-terror proposal

Author: JT Smith

ComputerNewsDaily: "Civil liberties groups are concerned that the anti-terrorism bill proposed by the Bush Administration
would lump small-time hackers in with murderous terrorists.

The draft proposal from Attorney General John Ashcroft would expand law enforcement's
freedom to catch and punish terrorists. It would also expand the definition of ``federal terrorism
offenses'' to include various crimes, including damaging computers by breaking into them or writing
viruses."
