    Looks like the aftermath of 26/11 is also being reflected in the Tech world.

    giving the government endless power to “intercept or monitor any information through any computer resource,”
    So now we gonna be monitored by our very own desi Big Brother....:neutral:

    Does this mean intercepting downloads too? :|
    Even so, I doubt whether it will be implemented succesfully.

    1.) terrorist arent fools to let them in the hands of cyber police ...
    2.) as was shown in Wednesday film ... ( i think the title is correct ) our computer , technology are way back or say backwards....
    3.) even if its the case , normal people dont have to worry. coz wht are we to hide ?? but if some idiot in the gov tries to look into to gain some p.s files and other stuff.. then it will get dirty.... very dirty... !!!
    4.) but if 3 is to be true... at present there are so many idiotic/noobish net users who dont know basic stuffs and get carried awaya with , stupid offer , porn sites , and give out passwords , CC , etc...etc... and dont forget the orkut is place where many loose theirs ids.. privacy etc...
    so actually it doesnt matter....
    5.) and to gov... terrorist may NEVER or usually not use the common y! , Gmail or other things... and wht if they give thier plan on RAR file with password protected ??
    do u have powerful computers to scan , decrypt those files to view inside them ???

    or wht if they use tor network ???

    6.) and does gov knows about hacking coz innocent people may be mistaken for terrorist or cyber crime individuals.. since there are so many things called mac address spoofers , ip spoofers ... etc...


    i dont know how well this law can be effective...

    instead of these waste laws .. why cant they increase army strength , invest in R&D for weapons etc

    Very repressive law, if it's passed. It just shows how POOR is the understanding of technology by the government. I wonder

    What's there to stop terrorists from communicating by email using openpgp or other privacy tools that encrypt email and IM traffic?

    What's there to stop terrorists from encrypting volumes in Windows or Linux?

    i think 95-99% will be against this law. it is just like that some one enters in your house (To see how much u eat daily seconds, minutes,hrs , days , years :-?)

    If u read the below par. what means violation of privacy. Gov. it self violation violation of privacy by this law

    For those indulging in cyber terrorism, the new legislation provides for stiff penalty of life imprisonment. The bill also says that dishonestly receiving stolen computer resource, identity theft, cheating by personation by using computer resource and violation of privacy will result in imprisonment upto three years apart from fine between Rs 1 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.

    this is another article which has made it to slashdot

    and the controversial part are viewing P0R N is now illegal and police can come anytime to check ur pc activites

    ds more like provisions currently being proposed in Australia. the blogger writes, "Around 45 amendments have been made to the original Act, which now treats both publishers of online pornography and its consumers on equal footing. A law so sweeping in its powers that it allows a police officer in the rank of a sub-inspector to walk in or break in to the privacy of your home and see if you were surfing porn or not."
