    It was an earlier version that considered all hacking terrorism and put a life sentance with it. The version that pasted is not that one, it does consider some hacking terrorism, but the life sentance requirement was removed. For hacking to be considered terrorism it has to fall under one of 4 catagories, so just dont be hacking to many gov't comps or the CDC
