Philippine Cybercrime Bill
« on: January 25, 2010, 10:47:50 am »
House Deputy Majority Leader and Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo M. Angara on Sunday lauded the approval on third and final reading of the cybercrime bill which imposes stiffer penalties for violators.

Angara, one of the principal authors of House Bill 6794 or the proposed “Cybercrime Prevention Act”, at the same time appealed to the Senate to give and exert the same enthusiasm as that of the House’s in passing a measure that will protect the citizenry from the rising incidents of illegal, malicious and life-threatening acts committed through the use of the Internet, cellular phones and other computer devices.

Angara, a lawyer, said with the advent of technology, even government databases are some of the principal victims of these types of crimes.

He stressed legislation against cybercrime should be in place for the prevention, apprehension and prosecution of cybercrimes.

“The country must have a significant piece of legislation which would particularly prohibit and penalize the taking, uploading and distribution of sex videos,” Angara said.

The proposed Anti-Cybercrime bill defines various forms of cybercrime offenses and prescribes corresponding punishments.

These offenses include hacking, identity theft, phishing, spamming, website defacement, denial-of-service attacks, malware such as the infamous ILOVEYOU virus, child pornography and cyber prostitution.

The punishable acts listed under measure, which protects confidentiality, integrity and availability of computer data and systems; include illegal access, illegal interception, data interference, system interference and misuse of devices.

This shall also cover computer-related offenses such as computer forgery, computer-related fraud, cybersex, child pornography, unsolicited commercial communications and other offense such as aiding or abetting the commission of cybercrime.

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
