Hackers Face Penalties in Australia  

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - Computer hackers could face years in 
prison for sabotaging Web sites under tough new proposals released 
Saturday by the Australian government.  

Hackers responsible for Web site attacks similar to those launched 
this week on AOL and Yahoo could face up to 10 years behind bars if 
the Model Criminal Code discussion paper becomes law.
