Despite calls to limit the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, it looks like Congress is planning to drastically expand the law and penalties. walterbyrd writes with a few of the major changes listed in the draft bill (22 pages): “Adds computer crimes as a form of racketeering. Expands the ways in which you could be guilty of the CFAA — including making you just as guilty if you plan to ‘violate’ the CFAA than if you actually did so. Ratchets up many of the punishments. Makes a very, very minor adjustment to limit ‘exceeding authorized access.’ Expands the definition of ‘exceeding authorized access’ in a very dangerous way. Makes it easier for the federal government to seize and forfeit anything.” TechCrunch also reports rumors that the plan is to push the bill through quickly for approval with a number of other “cybersecurity” bills in mid-April.
