Umm, for the record, I do make such an accusation. When they probe a non-public government computer, they are violating 18 USC 1030 Sections 2(b), 2(c), and 3. Those are criminal violations. You simply may not probe government computers. Doing so is immediately a crime. The $5000 limit is only for non-government computers.
18 USC 1030... USC == United States Code
netgate.net.nz ... nz == New Zealand
Does the US somehow have jurisdiction over people in another country? Last time I checked, New Zealand was a sovereign country, and its citizens were bound by its OWN laws, and not the laws of the USA.
