The US will cancel the punishment for hackers who do not harm citizens or the state


White hat hackers get mitigated punishment

Information appeared on the official website of the US Department of Justice that the department is reviewing the punishment for hackers provided for by the current law on computer fraud and abuse.

We are talking about pentesters, or white hackers, who examine the information infrastructure for vulnerabilities without harming its users.

Such hackers will be exempt from punishment.

In the document, such specialists are called “ethical hackers”. It is noted that such services are used by large corporations like Apple, Valve, Microsoft and others.
