This paragraph from the article makes my point very, very clear:

Quote:
The new DOJ policy attempts to allay fears about the CFAA’s broad and ambiguous scope following a 2021 Supreme Court ruling that encouraged reading the law more narrowly. The ruling warned that government prosecutors’ earlier interpretation risked criminalizing a “breathtaking amount of commonplace computer activity,” laying out several hypothetical examples that the DOJ now promises it won’t prosecute. That change is paired with a safe harbor for researchers carrying out “good-faith testing, investigation, and/or correction of a security flaw or vulnerability.” The new rules take effect immediately, replacing old guidelines issued in 2014.


First, SCOTUS blew it by not simply ruling the entire Law unconstitutional as being so vague on what a cybercrime is so it violates the 4th Amendment's "no unreasonable" modifier for searches and seizures. Second, the fact that the DOJ has changed the interpretation twice on how this Law is to be enforced points to the fact that the next administration could change it again, making it impossible for anyone to actually comply with this Law.
