Computer Crime

Computer-related fraud is an offence (s43APOA), as is damaging computer data (s43B) and computer hacking (s43C). The penalty is up to 20 penalty units and up to 2 years in jail. If the computer fraud or hacking emanated from outside Tasmania but there is a substantial link with Tasmania, the Police Offences Act can still apply as if the offence had taken place entirely within Tasmania.
