Unauthorised access, modification or impairment with intent to commit a serious indictable offence is a crime under section 308C of the Crimes Act 1900, which carries a maximum penalty equivalent to that of the intended offence.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
‘Unauthorised computer function’ means:
‘Data held in a computer’ means:
‘Access’ to data held in a computer means:
‘Modification’ of data held in a computer means:
‘Impairment’ of an electronic communication means:
‘Impairment’ does not include the mere interception of a communication.
