House Passes Ban On File Sharing Use By Government Employees

Of course, this was only passed in the House, and it looks like the Senate is going in a different direction -- instead preferring an equally pointless bill that would require any file sharing software (again, so broadly worded that it would include browsers, FTP software, backup software, etc.) to pop up an alert that you would have to click every time you opened the software.
Hey Congress, here's a better idea: instead of passing dumb laws with serious unintended consequences, why not have a bit of basic computer security training for your staffers so they don't do idiotic things like putting top secret plans in a shared folder?
