Netflix Could Be Classified As A 'Cybersecurity Threat' Under New CISPA Rules

The cybersecurity bill making its way through the Senate right now is so broad that it could allow ISPs to classify Netflix as a "cyber threat," which would allow them to throttle the streaming service's delivery to customers.
