House Votes to Approve Disputed Hacking Bill

"Defying a veto threat from President Obama, the House on Thursday passed a bill that encourages intelligence agencies and businesses to share information about threats to computer systems, including attacks on American Web sites by hackers in China and other countries."

Annie's take:

Enacting a bad piece of legislation does nothing to avert cyberthreats, especially since all information sharing from the private sector is voluntary.
