0 3

It’s about time Congress got involved with this cybersecurity issue.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon wants the House of Representatives to stage a formal inquiry into the sudden surge in fake accounts copying the names of netizens, especially those critical of the Duterte administration in one weekend.

It’s a hot topic as some feared these accounts can be used against them to eventually tag themselves as terrorists in the context of the Anti-Terrorism bill. The politiko said these duplicate profiles could be used for fraud, identity theft, breach of privacy, harassment, and other crimes.
