The European parliament has voted in favour of stronger sentences for cybercriminals, especially those that threaten national infrastructure.

Under new laws the 28 EU member states will be required to set terms of no less than two years in prison for individuals caught illegally accessing information systems, tampering with data, illegally intercepting communications, or creating tools that help commit such offences.
