Top Telco Seeks Right To Block Malicious Internet Traffic

Telstra is seeking federal law changes to allow it to block Internet traffic that it believes may be malicious.  The telco is currently building a global network of security operations centres, meaning it can often see attacks as they’re forming, according to security solutions director Neil Campbell.

However Campbell, a former Federal Police computer crimes investigator, said the Crimes Act currently limits its ability to act against traffic it believes is malicious.

“We’ll see that traffic – but right now we don’t believe we have a clear legal mandate to interfere with it,” he told IT News.
