Computer Misuse Act (Chapter 50A)

Any person who knowingly causes a computer to perform any function for the purpose of securing access without authority to any program or data held in any computer shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or to both. This legislation criminalises the act of hacking into someone else's computer regardless of whether the other party has suffered any harm. Where one attempts to cause an unauthorised modification of the contents of any computer, the penalties are more serious; one found guilty of such an offence shall be liable to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years or to both.
