The Federal Government has broadly accepted all 34 recommendations of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications’ report on Cybercrime.

In its response [PDF] to recommendations tabled in June, the Government stressed a broad and flexible approach to managing the growing menace posed by internationally-driven botnets.
