CISPA Act Passed By House of Representatives [bbc.co.uk]
|The US House of Representatives has passed a cyber-security bill amid a veto threat from President Barack Obama. |
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (Cispa), would allow the government to access web users' private data on suspicion of a cyber threat.
It would also allow easier information-sharing between security agencies and private web firms.
Advocacy groups claim that it is aimed at file-sharers rather than hackers.
They also raised concerns about the transparency of the act.
