We've discussed the overhyped moral panic around the concept of a cyberwar, and how the term is abused -- potentially just as a way for government contractors to get hundreds of millions in easy government contracts. And, it looks like that process has only just begun. Senator Joe Lieberman is apparently about to unveil a "Cybersecurity" bill that doesn't seem to attack any real issue in making the government more secure. Instead, it looks like it really just seeks to limit competition in what government agencies can purchase. In other words, it'll just make things more expensive for the government, while probably not doing much to make anything or anyone more secure.
