CISPA passes House

From Huffington Post:

The House of Representatives passed cybersecurity legislation Thursday aimed at protecting American companies from hackers who steal intellectual property.


But the legislation has been criticized by privacy and civil liberties groups who said its definition of the consumer data that can be shared with the government is overly broad. The bill's authors added several amendments to appease concerns, such as limiting the federal government's use of private information and restricting which cyber-threat data can be shared.
