CYBER CRIMES

In the era of cyber world as the usage of computers became more popular, there was expansion in the growth of technology as well, and the term ‘Cyber’ became more familiar to the people. The evolution of Information Technology (IT) gave birth to the cyber space wherein internet provides equal opportunities to all the people to access any information, data storage, analyse etc. with the use of high technology. Due to increase in the number of netizens, misuse of technology in the cyberspace was clutching up which gave birth to cyber crimes at the domestic and international level as well.

 

Though the word Crime carries its general meaning as “a legal wrong that can be followed by criminal proceedings which may result into punishment” whereas Cyber Crime may be “unlawful acts wherein the computer is either a tool or target or both”.

 

The world 1st computer specific law was enacted in the year 1970 by the German State of Hesse in the form of ‘Data Protection Act, 1970’ with the advancement of cyber technology. With the emergence of technology the misuse of technology has also expanded to its optimum level and then there arises a need of strict statutory laws to regulate the criminal activities in the cyber world and to protect technological advancement system. It is under these circumstances Indian parliament passed its “INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACT, 2000” on 17th oct to have its exhaustive law to deal with the technology in the field of e-commerce, e-governance, e-banking as well as penalties and punishments in the field of cyber crimes.

The computer is used in each and every sector wherein cyberspace provides equal opportunities to all for economic growth and human development. As the user of cyberspace grows increasingly diverse and the range of online interaction expands, there is expansion in the cyber crimes i.e. breach of online contracts, perpetration of online torts and crimes etc. Due to these consequences there was need to adopt a strict law by the cyber space authority to regulate criminal activities relating to cyber and to provide better administration of justice to the victim of cyber crime. In the modern cyber technology world it is very much necessary to regulate cyber crimes and most importantly cyber law should be made stricter in the case of cyber terrorism and hackers.

Penalty For Damage To Computer System: According to the Section: 43 of ‘Information Technology Act, 2000’ whoever does any act of destroys, deletes, alters and disrupts or causes disruption of any computer with the intention of damaging of the whole data of the computer system without the permission of the owner of the computer, shall be liable to pay fine upto 1crore to the person so affected by way of remedy.

Case Study-Attacks on Cyberspace: 

  • Worm Attack: The Robert Tappan Morris well Known as First Hacker, Son of former National Security Agency Scientist Robert Morris, was the first person to be prosecuted under the ‘Computer and Fraud Act, 1986’. He has created worm while at Cornell as student claiming that he intended to use the worm to check how large the internet was that time. The worm was uncontrollable due to which around 6000 computer machines were destroyed and many computers were shut down until they had completely malfunctioned. He was ultimately sentenced to three years probation, 400 hours of community service and assessed a fine of $10500. So there must be strict laws to punish the criminals who are involved in cyber crime activities.
  • Hacker Attack: Fred Cohen, a Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California wrote a short program in the year 1983, as an experiment, that could “infect” computers, make copies of itself, and spread from one machine to another. It was beginning & it was hidden inside a larger, legitimate program, which was loaded into a computer on a floppy disk and many computers were sold which can be accommodate at present too. Other computer scientists had warned that computer viruses were possible, but Cohen’s was the first to be documented. A professor of his suggested the name “virus”. Cohen now runs a computer security firm.
  • Internet Hacker: Wang Qun, who was known by the nickname of “playgirl”, was arrested by chinese police in the Hubei province first ever arrest of an internet hacker in China. He was a 19 year old computing student, arrested in connection with the alleged posting of pornographic material on the homepages of several government-run web sites. Wang had openly boasted in internet chat rooms that he had also hacked over 30 other web sites too.

  • Web servers running public sites must be physically separately protected from internal corporate network.
  •  It is better to use a security programmes by the body corporate to control information on sites.
  • Strict statutory laws need to be passed by the Legislatures keeping in mind the interest of netizens.
  • IT department should pass certain guidelines and notifications for the protection of computer system and should also bring out with some more strict laws to breakdown the criminal activities relating to cyberspace.
  • As Cyber Crime is the major threat to all the countries worldwide, certain steps should be taken at the international level for preventing the cybercrime.
  • A complete justice must be provided to the victims of cyber crimes by way of compensatory remedy and offenders to be punished with highest type of punishment so that it will anticipate the criminals of cyber crime.

      Ofcourse you can sue him.
      even if he is a family member he has gained unauthorized(without your consent) access to your account , which is illegal.
      it is a case of CRACKING where he has tampered your data.
      hence you have the right to sue him.

    You are welcome to the wonder land of hacks, want to know how to hack an ATM MACHINE OR BANK ACCOUNT? You can hack and break into a bank’s security without carrying guns or any weapon.
    We are universal hackers and we just succeeded with an illegal invention.. well, this seems strange but true.. we just succeeded with hacking universal ATM machines with a blank ATM card.. These cards could withdraw $5000 per day, each of the card can only be useless once you withdrew the total amount of $10 Million United State Dollars. The card will make the security camera malfunction at that particular time until you are done with the transaction you can never be traced.. depending on how they are programmed..say goodbye to poverty, these cards are just for you.we know this is illegal but we are living large with it i do many things on low key to avoid suspicion.i am not going to give out the blank cards for free because we spent most of our time hacking it. so, we want to make them available for you. NOTE: The ATM cards has no registered account number, they can work anywhere in the world, and they are untraceable.We are currently selling this black card at a give away price of $120 to serious minded people. If you need this card, contact me with this email: info.hackcreditcard@gmail.com

    Please read the following articles-
    Article -1.
    Dear Sir,
    Women rights and safety plays very important role in our country INDIA. Now crimes are getting increased against women because of the PORN SITES available online.
    Several 1000’s of women were taken video without their knowledge and uploaded in these sites daily. The mobile shops play an important role in this. They download videos and photos from the mobile phones they receive for servicing.
    Some may contain videos and photos taken by husband and wife for fun among themselves.
    May contain naked photos and naked videos.
    The mobile shops they steal these and upload in porn websites and earn money.
    So many suicides are happening in our country INDIA because of these videos – available in online.
    When the affected family come to know that their naked videos are available in internet then to maintain the family dignity or status and because of shame the family members are committing suicide.
    These mobile shops also threaten the customers with such videos in their mobiles and try to get sexual satisfaction from their wives stating that – if u give your wife for our sexual satisfaction then we will not upload these videos online. If not we will upload these videos online.
    So the husbands have no chance other that accepting their demand.
    Also friends when they see such naked videos in internet they copy that and threaten the female individually and get money and sexual satisfaction from them.
    Many unmarried girls and minor girls are taken videos secretly and the videos are being uploaded to dishonor them and blackmail them. Girls are committing suicide.
    Why government is maintaining silence in this great issue. Government knows everything happening in our country. But maintaining silence in this issue is not acceptable.
    Those naked videos are videos of our daughters and sisters. We Indians – all are brothers and sisters.
    Day and night young adults are getting addicted to these videos and spoiling their life and these videos stimulate them to commit sexual crimes and earn money threatening the people in such videos.
    Secret Cameras are fixed in girls &ladies rest rooms and then the videos are uploaded online.
    Mobile service shops are uploading these videos of local people to mobile phones of school children and get money. Some school kids are shocked to see their neighbors in those videos.
    Operation Theater in hospitals are making female patients naked and taking videos for enjoyment (some hospitals)
    THESE ARE FEW……………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    We cannot prevent this.
    But what we can prevent is -these videos are not uploaded online – this can be made by strict laws.

    Solution?
    What is the solution.
    Government should frame suitable laws regarding these porn sites.
    Or Government should block these sites.
    Or if any video is there in such websites and the concerned parties are approaching court that their nakedness has been exposed in that site, then the court should punish the website owner and uploader (death punishment) and they should pay a fine of one crore to the affected party and the video should be deleted. (the victims are bound to face secondary harassment in the hands of police as well – should be protected )(Enquiry should be conducted by female Judge)
    This should be made compulsory to eradicate such great crime happening in our country.
    NO MOBILE PHONE SHOULD CONTAIN NAKED VIDEOS OR PHOTOS.
    Daily 1000s of videos of innocent Indian girls are getting uploaded secretly in porn sites.
    Please take action immediately to protect our brothers and sisters.

    Student organisations
    Media AND
    EVERY COMMON MAN
    etc…
    Should take immediate action…. JAI HIND
    Please take action to protect our Indians.

    Article – 2.
    Respected Sir, Legal or illegal
    Many Indian women’s naked videos are freely available in porn sites without their knowledge. This is done by culprits either by taking secret recordings of men and women involved in family relation (husband and wife) or by stealing videos and photos from mobile phone they get for servicing.
    Culprits are not only stealing videos but also uploading these videos in online porn sites for money. They also threaten the girl or wife (involved in the video) by showing these videos for money and sexual satisfaction from them.
    This is legal or illegal.
    If it is legal —– then government should issue an order approving – taking videos of married couples /girls without their knowledge by keeping secret cam in hotel rooms , rest rooms, swimming pools, dressing trial rooms or stealing videos of husband and wife from their mobile phones etc….and uploading in porn sites for money without their consent as their fundamental right. If government approves this then many useless adults in India will do this crime work happily. So as a result our country will get spoiled. No girl can live happily. Many girls will commit suicide. Family system (one for one) will get spoiled. If government approves this then it may also put an order that all girls should show their nakedness in porn sites and may also approve prostitution. Etc……………….

    If it is Illegal —— then government should delete such stolen videos which are against human basic rights immediately and permanently. If the people in such videos are giving consent that their videos can be displayed to the public through porn sites. If not and the videos are being displayed without the participants consent then strict action should be taken against the up loader and the porn site owner (maximum punishment). Then the videos should be completely deleted from all sites and the affected party should be given psychological counseling to repair their mental trauma and sufficient compensation should be given to the broken hearts – to again lead a peaceful life in India.

    Sir, this is a rapidly growing problem now in India without publicity. So many girls, ladies and families are heartbroken, mentally ill after seeing their or their relative’s naked videos in porn sites (informed by some friends). Some are also committing suicide.

    Please put an end to this growing problem by filing a public interest litigation case against porn sites showing Indian naked videos without the participants consent. Otherwise even our blood relative’s porn video will be available soon in porn sites. Please do this for a great turning point in our country.
    Thank you sir’s.

If government approves this then many useless adults in India will do this crime work happily. So as a result our country will get spoiled. No girl can live happily. Many girls will commit suicide. Family system (one for one) will get spoiled. If government approves this then it may also put an order that all girls should show their nakedness in porn sites and may also approve prostitution. Etc……………….

    If it is Illegal —— then government should delete such stolen videos which are against human basic rights immediately and permanently. If the people in such videos are giving consent that their videos can be displayed to the public through porn sites. If not and the videos are being displayed without the participants consent then strict action should be taken against the up loader and the porn site owner (maximum punishment). Then the videos should be completely deleted from all sites and the affected party should be given psychological counseling to repair their mental trauma and sufficient compensation should be given to the broken hearts – to again lead a peaceful life in India.

    Sir, this is a rapidly growing problem now in India without publicity. So many girls, ladies and families are heartbroken, mentally ill after seeing their or their relative’s naked videos in porn sites (informed by some friends). Some are also committing suicide.

    Please put an end to this growing problem by filing a public interest litigation case against porn sites showing Indian naked videos without the participants consent. Otherwise even our blood relative’s porn video will be available soon in porn sites. Please do this for a great turning point in our country.
    Thank you sir’s.

    Dear Sir, Good Evening.

    I have a query.

    One of my friend has shared her nude photos to her boyfriend on account of over trusting. Now that girl is married and she fears he might post her photos to any website or he might show them to her husband or any of the other family member.

    Please suggest what she must do to make sure that he doesn’t do the same and he completely delete her photos.

    Thanks

    First of all article 66a does not deal with “who” sent the mail as mail is only sent by i.p address and so anyone can hack a mail account and send mail to anybody without u knowing that it has been hacked. There is something called cracking of email password which is not even close to hacking but can be used against anyone. Second most important thing if I make an email id by the name Amitabh Bachchan that does not mean it belongs to Mr. Bachchan. You can prove your innocence by producing witness like your student friends who used your lappi. This does not invite any threat don’t worry. According to IPC you are not guility unless you are proved guilty. And proving is not a short cut process. Please consult some IT technicians help to understand this. I am post graduate in computer application and ethical hacking but being professional I would suggest you to take help of some IT guy who makes you understand few ins and outs and do consult some good layer in your family you can trust. This is now days all business and one more advise – Never let anyone use your lappi this should be your life mantra. Grow up u are not a kid now. World is full of bastards you never know who is sitting next to you. God bless you and I would pray for your help from God. Stay safe and do keep your elders informed in this.

    But the govt offices issued a computer generated memo on 17.07.2012 and received the same memo on 16.08.2012.My question is just to escape from penalty under RTI ACT the officer signed the manipulated date and stored the computer alternation data.Is it Cyber crime ?
