其中一个应用程序,对象,它给Lori发了一封信,声明她不再被授权监视进出Befit的数据流。洛里在收到信后继续监视befit。在此之前,根据《计算机欺诈和滥用法》(CFAA),18 USC 1030(a)(2)(c)起诉Lori。本节规定:(1)未经授权故意访问计算机(2),(3)从而获取信息是违法的。假设监控应用程序的数据流被视为根据《计算机欺诈和滥用法》对其进行访问(以及对计算机的访问)。

1. Give what you take to be the strongest argument for the claim that Lori violates the CFAA. 给出你认为最有力的理由来证明洛里违反了CFAA。
Lori使用Wireshark查看智能手机上的医疗和健身应用程序发送数据的位置。然而,Wireshark让她可以看到无线网络上的所有流量。这不是一个预期的事件。其中一个应用程序,befit,反对并向lori发送一封声明反对意见的信,最后根据《计算机欺诈和滥用法》(以下简称“CFAA”),18 USC 1030(a)(2)(c),起诉lori,该法案规定“任何人故意未经授权或超过授权访问计算机,从而从任何受保护的计算机获取信息“…“应按照本节第(c)小节的规定处罚。”CFAA将Lori的行为视为非法行为,因为她“(1)未经授权故意访问计算机(2),(3)由此获取信息”。
Lori uses Wireshark to see where medical and fitness apps on smart phones send their data. However, Wireshark lets her see all traffic over the wireless network. And this was not an anticipated event. One of the apps, BeFit, objects and sends Lori a letter stating the objection, and finally sues Lori under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (hereinafter “CFAA”), 18 USC 1030 (a)(2)(C), which states “Whoever intentionally accesses a computer without authorization or exceeds authorized access, and thereby obtains information from any protected computer”... “shall be punished as provided in subsection (c) of this section.”  CFAA makes Lori’s conduct illegal as she “(1) intentionally access a computer (2) without authorization, and (3) thereby obtain information”. 
If I defend Befit, I will take “without authorization” to be the strongest argument for the claim that Lori violates the CFAA. “Without authorization” means lack of consent, it is unauthorized access and undesirable intrusions, which are indictable cyber intrusions under CFAA. 
In the United States, undesirable intrusions into the other person's computer systems without the consent of others are restricted by computer access laws, such as CFAA.Therefore, the scope of the plaintiff's permission granted to the defendant is directly related to whether the intrusion was infringing or constituted "unauthorized access".
According to the general rules of the contract, limiting personal access to a web page, a database, a software, or other intangible valuable information can be carried out through a contract mechanism (such as click on the effective contract). Individuals or other automated search programs may be allowed to view, download, edit, and engage in acts related to web pages, data, computer programs, and the range of granting behaviors based on contracts with the owner or administrator of a Web site or database. The court may accordingly determine the scope of the authorization.The plaintiff's technical filtering or blocking inferred that he did not agree.
In this case, even BeFit did not conduct technical filtering or blocking, it sends Lori a letter, stating that she is not authorized to monitor data flows in or out of BeFit. And the Terms of Use Agreements and Privacy Policies prohibit monitoring data flows using technologies like Wireshark. Therefore, the strongest argument for the claim that Lori violates the CFAA might be “unauthorized access”. 
2. Give what you take to be the strongest argument for the claim that Lori does not violate the CFAA. 
Under CFAA 18 USC 1030 (a)(2)(C), it is prohibited to obtain information from any protected computer without authorization or exceeds authorized access. If I defend Lori in this case, below reason might be the strongest argument, that is, monitoring data via Wireshark is not obtaining information from any protected computer. 
CFAA requires the protection of the "protected computer”. The United States is one of the few countries to ratify the system. According to CFAA, protected computers refer to computers used by financial institutions, the United States Government, or intercontinental commerce.
The CFAA regards the following acts as federal offenses: unauthorized or over-authorized intrusion into a computer and access to classified information on diplomatic relations and national defence by hacking into the computer. Unauthorized or unauthorized access to a computer, if the act involves intercontinental or national exchanges, access to information about financial or credit institutions, information about government departments or agencies, or information from protected computers. Unauthorized and wilful intrusion into any non-public computer of the United States Government, or a dedicated computer of a non-United States government department or agency, for the purpose of influencing the use of it by the United States Government. Unauthorized access to protected computers and knowingly and intentionally committing fraud of  $5000 or more lasted for a year. It is an offence not to require the injury to occur if the following acts are committed: modify, destroy, or attempt to modify medical records or medical information, cause or may cause a threat to public safety,  cause or may cause damage to computers used in the course of justice, national defence  or national security. Buying and selling passwords or other information used to illegally invade protected computers, if such illegal transactions affect intercontinental or external commerce, or if the computers involved are used by the United States Government. Dissemination of information that causes damage to protected computers and attempts to extort money or other valuable goods.
Offending one of the above acts (or its combination), if prosecuted, will result in imprisonment for up to 20 years. In 2000, the court's decision in the case of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. MIDDLETON et al interpreted CFAA as requiring the offender to pay compensation to cover the victim's maintenance costs. Back to our case, though Lori monitors the data, these data can be got by anyone who visit these apps via Wireshark. Lori’s conduct did not cause any financial loss or resulted in any consequence stated above. And more importantly, BeFit’s data cannot be regarded as “protected computer” according to CFAA. Therefore, monitoring data via Wireshark is not obtaining information from any protected computer. And this argument will be the strongest argument for the claim that Lori does not violate the CFAA. 
3. Evaluate which argument is better. 
I go for the second argument that Lori does not violate the CFAA. 
The CFAA stipulates that whoever shall bear the corresponding civil liability in the following circumstances:
(1) Anyone who intentionally accesses a computer system without authorization or beyond the authorized scope and obtains information from a protected computer system.And this action involves communications between the states of the United Statesor with foreign countries. The term "protected computer” systemrefers to a computer system connected to the Internet. However, the CFAA does not clearly define the meaning of "unauthorized access", but defines "exceeds authorized access", which refers to the person authorized to access a computer system to obtain or modify the information therein beyond the authorized scope.
