So there you have it, the purpose of CISA is “to share malware.”

Q: And should you believe that?

A: Yeah, that’s its purpose: information sharing equals sharing malware samples.

Q: Is CISA a surveillance bill?

A: No it isn’t… not from where I sit at least.

Q: But is CISA a good bill?

A: No, I don’t think so.

Q: Why?

A: Because from my point of view, CISA appears to be nothing more than corporate welfare for the military-digital complex.

Q: Will CISA become law?

A: All signs point to… yes.
