Bill seals up e-crime loophole – vnunet.com

The financial services industry has welcomed the government’s attempt to close a legal loophole that could allow criminals to get away with chip-and-PIN and cash machine fraud.

Attorney General Lord Goldsmith has added a clause to the Fraud Bill to make deceiving a computer a criminal offence.

Sure hope the actual legislation is a whole heck of a lot tighter than ‘deceiving a computer’ or I can see where there could be some major abuses of such legislation at both the governmental and big business level.
