Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden voted Thursday against bringing the controversial Cybersecurity Act of 2012 up for debate, citing what he said was the bill's failure to protect civil liberties and Internet users' privacy.

Wyden's vote was a defection from Senate Democrats' support of the controversial bill.
