Your Right to a Secure Website May Be In Danger

The Department of Justice is making changes to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that will increase law enforcement’s ability to hack into your computers. If you own a website, you will be affected. This change is being pushed through to Congress, who have until December 1 to change it, or disavow it completely.

This rule change will allow a judge to issue a warrant for law enforcement to remotely break into your computers and access and/or copy your data. You can read more about the issue on the EFF’s website here.

There are many organizations concerned about the future of our digital security that are urging others to join them in taking a stand to protect our civil liberties and also to bring attention to this attempt to sidestep our legislative process. In short, Congress should reject this proposal immediately. If you run a website, you should consider embedding this banner onto your site to spread the word.
