    Just so ya'll know, this implies the government doesn't need a warrant to detain you for allegedly cyber-attacking someone. If they suspect you of being up to no good, they can take measures they deem appropriate. I believe that the article also says it applies to international attacks or breaches aimed at the US

    This would be a good thing if it required proof that the suspect was actually doing what they are suspected of

    I'm surprised that nobody is talking about this. Of course, the damn media will keep quiet on this. Another disrespect of the notion on civil liberties and people say nothing.

    Because the people who are writing about it are getting it partially wrong. They still need a federal warrant. And to get that they must show enough proof to be able to say your a suspect.

    Generally speaking, sanctions are a still major deal. All your US and international bank accounts (the ones they can find) are frozen.

    They can have you locked away from the general public without a phone call for months...not hours or days but months. It can even become years if they find enough evidence against you. It's like they make you disappear without a trace, only worse. Of course this is the worst case scenario. Don't be an idiot and intend to harm and/or steal money from other parties and your safe.

    The mere fact that the feds can make you "disappear" for months is a bit "Cruel and Unusual". Again, The U.S. is acting exactly like some worse off nations that it claims to be superior to.
