What A Hack

Recently, the Computer Society of Zambia cried foul when Parliamentarians passed The Internet Crime Bill -- making hacking crimes punishable by 25 years in prison -- according to The CSZ is concerned the law will curb Internet access in a country where only 0.1% of the residents are estimated to own computers.

Zambia's "most famous" hacking case involved someone hacking a government website and replacing a picture of then-President Chiluba with a cartoon. Charges against the alleged hacker were dropped, because Zambia did not have a hacking law.
