Linz is also affected – the data theft on FPÖ Instagram pages continues

Aggravated punishment, but not itself punishable
What is also mean: The simple copying of an Instagram page with a slightly changed user name is not criminally prosecutable per se, as the Linz legal scholar Alois Birklbauer (JKU) explains to the “Krone”: “But it has an aggravating effect when dealing with this type of identity theft Criminal offenses – such as attempted fraud – are committed.” It would be different, namely independently punishable, if, for example, data were deliberately sucked off by hackers in violation of data protection regulations and confidentiality interests were violated or someone was to be exposed. Cybercrime is becoming more and more rampant, most recently with deep fake videos that pretend that a certain person is actually in front of you.
