Hacking Statute of Limitations

What is the Federal Statute of Limitations for Hacking?

The statute of limitations for hacking varies by jurisdiction and the specific laws that apply. In the United States, for example, the federal computer crime statute (18 U.S.C. § 1030) has a five-year statute of limitations, while state laws may have shorter or longer statutes of limitations. Additionally, some federal laws, such as the wire fraud statute (18 U.S.C. § 1343) may also apply to hacking offenses and may have different statutes of limitations. Additionally, some hacking offenses, such as those involving national security or identity theft, may have longer statutes of limitations. It is advisable to consult with an attorney who is experienced in computer crime law to determine the specific statute of limitations that may apply in a given case.
