Second Chamber agrees with ‘terughackwet’

Second Chamber agrees with ‘terughackwet’

A majority of the Second Chamber has agreed with the ‘terughackwet’. The organisation has opted for a stricter variant, where vulnerabilities quickly with software makers should be reported.

The new wet Computercriminaliteit III allows the police to computers of suspects in conduct judicial inquiries to hacking.

The Second Room was earlier in december divided about the law during a debate, about the use of vulnerabilities unknown to software makers (also known as ‘zero-days’).

The law suggested in its proposed form police be able to these vulnerabilities afterwards, not immediately to tech report, which software is unsafe could continue. An adopted amendment of the VVD and PvdA are obliged by the police in many cases to the leaks immediately to report.

The police have a vulnerability still keep that a secret, then must the judge-commissioner’s consent. In addition, the court is an “independent test” run, so that the importance of the police not to easy over the safety of software is made.

D66 tried the use of vulnerabilities in the act at all to avoid it, but got no kamermeerderheid. The same applies to a proposal of CDA, that the suspects wanted to commit to dates to decrypt an investigation.

The bill now goes to the senate, where the government has no majority.
