Electronic Graffiti

In today’s computer-based society, real-world crimes may spill over into the virtual world. Just as public and private property may be defaced by vandals, web properties may be altered or destroyed by computer hackers. The problem of hacking or defacing of websites (also known as “electronic graffiti”) can have a serious effect on companies and individuals who use the internet for business.

People accused of hacking may face criminal charges for their actions and may face fines, probation, and even incarceration depending on the seriousness of the crime. If you have been wrongly accused of computer hacking, contact the Austin criminal lawyer Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950.

Types of Computer Crimes

Computer crimes may include but are not limited to:

  • Computer fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Espionage
  • Wire fraud
  • Electronic graffiti and website defacement
  • Vandalism
  • Cyber-stalking
  • Phishing

Some individuals may not be aware that hacking into personal or corporate websites may be considered a serious crime. Such actions may be traced back to the perpetrator and can carry serious criminal consequences. It is important to understand the rules regarding the use of computers for business, recreation, and social networking and the consequences of using a computer in an illegal manner.
