    Each incidence of "hacking" - accessing a computer without authorisation - is a criminal offence under the Computer fraud and Abuse act.

    Penalties range from large fines to several years imprisonment for each offence.

    Depending on the information source and what is taken and revealed, there may be other criminal or civil offences.

    Home invasion of an occupied dwelling with intent to steal and distribute private information. That's just one of the many that you can get charged with. That one that I mentioned will get you 10 years in prison. It doesn't make a difference if you burst through the front door of an occupied dwelling or you break into the home electronically. It's still home invasion of an occupied dwelling with intent to steal.
