It's an interesting subject. It must rely on what ARIN defines authorized as.
If the object is protected by an email address, the person with the
email address would be assumed to be authorized. If protected by PGP,
MD5 or CRYPT-PW, then the same thing would apply. If someone steals
or fakes one of those objects, then that would be an issue between the
company it was stolen from and the person who stole it (i.e. the
authorized person would just ask ARIN to reverse the change).
If ARIN means by hacking the database (literally), then that would
certainly be a issue that they would deal with but that would not
affect a company who is authorized to modify the object.
