SANS - Survey on application security programs

European politicians have scrapped a plan to ban anonymous e-mail, as predicted by The Register earlier this month.

The Council of Ministers - made up of senior politicians from member states - rejected proposals passed by the European Parliament, which would have outlawed the use of anonymous e-mail addresses.

The proposals were said to be unworkable after the European Parliament's Committee for Citizens' Freedoms Rights, Justice and Home Affairs, said that banning anonymous e-mail would help combat the activities of cybercriminals.

Exact details of the rejected proposals have yet to be made public due to the (b)eurocratic nature of European government. ®
