We seem to be under cyber attack from the USA - is this a serious enough "disruption of an electronic communication system" to invoke "Emergency Powers" under the Civil Contingencies Bill if it were on the statute books yet ?
Why do so many US companies with anti-virus scanning email gateways still waste bandwidth and forward full copies of the infected files in their email bounce messages to the forged sender email addresses, thereby helping the worm to spread ? We will treat such "bounces" as criminal attacks just as if they are direct attempts at virus/worm infection.
We are getting attempted "Referrer Spam" fallout from the USA "Democrats" online election campaigns - how dim an internet user do you have to be to
think that a .uk domain name would be helpful in promoting a candidate in a USA election ?
Be warned - we have a zero tolerance policy to "cyber attacks" and we will do our best to get you extradited to face justice here in the United Kingdom under the existing computer misuse laws, the new anti-spam laws, and, if appropriate, the anti-terrorism laws.
