The Talmud in Bava Kama 91a talks about inducing panic in someone -- "our courts can't charge the person, but Heaven will take him to task." I would assume the same would apply here, at first glance. (I'm not well-read on the halachic literature on the subject.) The classical examples of charging for embarrassment involve physical actions such as spitting ...

Point number one, you are invading his privacy for which the cheirem of Rabbeinu Gershom would apparently apply. This article discusses similar modern inventions as far as this cheirem goes. http://www.torah.org/advanced/business-halacha/5757/vol2no17.html Second, while it seems the damage done by hacking is not 'real' in the sense that no property was ...

Since you agreed to hear some reason why it may be different, I'll give what I think is a reason to differentiate. The reasoning one can smash his way through the filled up reshus harabim is, as the Aruch HaShulchan (siff 3) explains, in order to make himself a pathway. That makes sense with the barrel case. The double parked car might be different as it is ...
