News in brief: Alabama considers porn filters; Samsung launches new Galaxy; celeb’s Instagram hacked – Naked Security

The bill is virtually identical to similar bills proposed in North Dakota and South Carolina, reported The Register. If it goes ahead, any internet-capable device will, as of January 1 2018, have to block a range of content, most of it legal adult entertainment, by default.

In practical terms, that means a cellphone, computer or tablet. As The Register points out, the broad definition also includes IoT devices, though it seems unlikely a smart doorbell, for example, would be required to have the filters.

Failure to comply could see the seller of a device in jail for up to 10 years.
