[CVE-BULK] Cybercrime treaty update

PARIS (Reuters) - The world's first cybercrime treaty is being hastily
redrafted after Internet lobby groups assailed it as a threat to human
rights that could have ``a chilling effect on the free flow of
information and ideas.''
One new passage spells out that ``cracking'' computer systems to test
security is legal and that ISPs would only be asked to store specific
data related to a suspected crime, not vast quantities of traffic that
would swamp their systems.


"It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once."
