Abstract: Let $ A$ be a separable $ {C^ * }$-algebra, $ \alpha $ a $ *$-automorphism of $ A$. The following theorem is proven: $ \alpha $ is weakly inner in every faithful, nondegenerate representation of $ A$ if and only if $ \alpha $ fixes each closed, two-sided ideal of $ A$ and the Borchers spectrum of each quotient automorphism vanishes.
