According to a July 6, 2006 article on Islamweb.net about the ruling on hacking of emails, “hacking emails which belong to the enemies is permissible during war time to learn about them, their numbers, and weaponry, because it would benefit and empower the Muslims’ army.” The article cited a Ph.D. dissertation titled “Jurisprudence for electronic transactions” by the now-Dean of The High Judicial Institute at Imam Mohammed Bin Saud University. MEMRI is in possession of this dissertation.
