James Gilmore (R-Virginia), the commission's chairman, said Wednesday that federal judges have been far too sluggish in approving search warrants and eavesdropping of online miscreants. Instead, Gilmore told the House Science committee, the commission will recommend that a "cyber court" be created with extraordinary powers to authorize electronic surveillance and secret searches of suspected hackers' homes and offices.
"I think hackers should also be considered terrorists and sentences that hackers get should be in line with terrorist sentences," Ehlers said.
