UK denies Denial of Service attacks

(via Out-Law) The Police And Justice Act 2006 has been passed yesterday. This new Act contains criminal sanctions for those who access a computer with the intent of impairing its operation, to prevent or hinder access to any program or data held on it, or to impair the operation of any program or data.

This is obviously intended to attack the implementation of technological attacks to a computer in order to criple it, and includes Denial of Service attcks, because they will hinder the operation of an internet server.
