U.S. Senator John McCain has introduced a cyber security bill that "has been harshly criticized by civil liberties groups for its Orwellian stipulations," according to TG Daily's Trent Nouveau.

"Indeed, the nascent legislation -- if passed -- would significantly expand the domestic reach of US intelligence agencies and their online surveillance capabilities," Nouveau writes. "The McCain bill proposes voluntary information sharing by Internet providers, with data from potentially 'malicious' cyber-actors routinely funneled into 'cybersecurity centers' run by the National Security Agency's Threat Operations Center and the US Cyber Command Joint Operations Center."
