Facebook Brings Claim Under Computer Fraud & Abuse Act

From eFluxMedia, a story concerning Facebook’s amending its lawsuit in the Northern District of California accusing defendants of unlawfully accessing its servers seeking the web site’s users’ personal details.

Facebook alleged that in June servers operated by the defendants used automated scripts to make more than 200,000 requests for personal information stored on Facebook’s own servers.

Facebook sued seventeen individuals as well as an Internet porn company. The company now claims the defendants violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as the California Comprehensive Computer Data Access and Fraud Act. Facebook also alleges breach of the Terms of Service set forth by the service that they agreed to upon signing up.
