Computers have revolutionized our lives. Just as they have brought ease, they have also caused many problems. Computer crimes have rapidly spread over the past few decades. A computer crime is broadly defined as a criminal act which primarily uses a computer or a network. Any unauthorized usage of computers, uninvited encroachment on computers or networks, operation of malicious programs, or online harassment constitutes computer crimes, also known as cyber crimes.
The line between criminal and non-criminal computer acts is not always clear. Therefore, it is essential to understand the nuances of computer crimes so that one is aware of acceptable and non-acceptable behavior in the computer world. If you or someone you know has been charged with a computer crime, be sure not to panic and imagine the worst possible scenario.
