Government's take on spyware
check this out guys,
imagine where it would take everyone who's using spywares..
The legislation also authorizes $10 million for the DOJ to combat spyware and phishing scams, although the bill does not specifically make phishing a crime.

It probably doesn't specifically make "phishing" a crime, because it's already a crime under several exisiting statutes.
Fraud, financial crimes, identity theft, etc. etc.
Besides, something just seems wrong about having a law on the books that contains a word like "phishing".....
