Ninth Circuit Affirms Conviction for Unauthorized Password Sharing: In this extended interview from Employment Law This Week (Episode 34: Week of July 18, 2016), James P. Flynn, Member of the Firm, discusses the Ninth Circuit's ruling that unapproved use of a former co-worker’s password can be criminal. An ex-recruiting firm employee used a current worker's credentials to gain unauthorized access to a company database. The Ninth Circuit held that this act violated the "without authorization" prong of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, noting that permission for legal access must be given by a computer system’s owner. This decision could have wide-reaching implications in an area of law that has become increasingly criminalized over the past few years.
