Uni Eropa akan mengkriminalisasikan program hacking


The text of the newest version of the proposal has not yet been made public, but the summary published by the committee indicates that prohibition on ‘hacking tools’ remains.

The proposal also targets tools used to commit offenses: the production or sale of devices such as computer programs designed for cyber-attacks, or which find a computer password by which an information system can be accessed, would constitute criminal offenses.

While the law seems aimed at blackmarket tools that can be used to create malware infested sites, it’s also likely to criminalize tools used by researchers, developers and black hats alike – including tools like fuzzers, the Metasploit penetration testing tool and the wi-fi sniffing tool Wireshark. (Perhaps even the command line would be outlawed.)

Oke, mari membanned program hacking, misalnya:

  • Gedit
  • Notepad++
  • Terminal
  • Command prompt
  • Redsn0w
  • Sn0wbreeze
