Tareq Al-Billeh

Abstract
The research deals with the legal controls of the crime of publishing a program on the Internet to cancel, delete, add, destroy, disclose, damage, withhold, modify, change, transfer, copy, capture or enable others to access data or information or otherwise the obstruction, interference, stopping or disabling the work of an information system or the access to it or changing a website, canceling in the Jordanian legislation. In fact, the study showed that in order for the act to be criminal, it must be committed by committing one of the acts provided in article (4) of the Jordanian E-Crimes Law. In fact, the mere storage or dissemination of
such programs with the intent of legitimate use does not constitute a crime.Yet, the study concluded a number of findings and recommendations, the most important of which are that it does not require availability of the specific intent of the specific motive for perpetrating the crime of publishing programs on the Internet or using the information system with the intent of harming others. Rather, the general intent represented by knowledge and will is sufficient.
