The Senate's new cybersecurity bill is all about defending U.S. trade secrets from foreign hackers.
A sponsor of the infamous Cyber Information Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) said hacktivist collective Anonymous carried out a campaign of threats against supporters of the bill.
Critics argue the vague language of the cybersecurity bill would allow companies to get away with some of the very same acts the bill is intended to stamp out.

That's nearly 140 times what the cybersecurity bill's opponents spent.
Despite the protests of Internet privacy advocates, the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) passed the House of Representatives Thursday.
