Abstract

This article argues that the CFAA as currently written is unsalvageable and requires a rewrite of its core provisions. Shifting paradigms to an approach driven by principles from computer security and epidemiology theory, this Article offers an attempted rewrite of the CFAA in a manner more attuned to the current security reality.

Keywords: CFAA, computer intrusion, hacking, security, information security, cybersecurity
