Peer to peer computer file sharing

Peer to peer computer file sharing may be coming to an end. Congressman Edolphus Towns plans to introduce a bill banning the use of peer-to-peer software on all government and contractor computers and networks. Possible information leaks about the electronics for the president's Marine One make such a ban necessary. Additionally, the GAO is calling for a more secure network to share digitized data. The Oversight and Government Reform Committee will continue hearings on this after Congress returns from its August recess.
