The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) is a federal statute that provides for not only criminal liability, but also civil liability, when a person accesses a computer “without authorization” or “exceeding authorized access.” However, as a result of differing opinions among federal circuit courts, the scope of actionable conduct under the CFAA remains unclear.
