Samia Sultana, she is from conservative family, she loved a boy who cheated with her and published some private pictures of her over the internet. For this reason she committed suicide. It is not only about her, in all over the Bangladesh there are lots of women or girls who are facing problems of cyber crime and taking some deadly attempt. In the article “Cyber Crime” the author Supan (2015), he describes the definitions of cyber crime. To begin with, there are many cyber crimes which are actually women centered (morphing, cyber stalking, cyber pornography etc.). However, these types of cyber crime mainly destroy women’s reputation and the reason behind of this inexperienced in cyber world. Moreover, Supan (2015) morphing is basically done for blackmailing women or girls by changing their pictures using graphic animation. Furthermore, cyber stalking is another cyber crime which is done by former friend or ex-lover of women or girls with whom she shared her feeling and emotions, so they bother her taking this advantage. In addition, cyber pornography means criminals made a private video of a girl and upload it over the internet for destroying her respect.

Cyber Crime in Bangladesh

...INTRODUCTION 1.1 Definition of Cyber Crime The internet in Bangladesh is growing rapidly. It has given rise to new opportunities in every field we can think of – be it entertainment, business, sports or education. There are two sides to a coin. Internet also has its own disadvantages. One of the major disadvantages is Cyber crime – illegal activity committed on the internet. The internet, along with its advantages, has also exposed us to security risks that come with connecting to a large network. Computers today are being misused for illegal activities like e-mail espionage, credit card fraud, spams, and software piracy and so on, which invade our privacy and offend our senses. “The modern thief can steal more with a computer than with a gun. Tomorrow's terrorist may be able to do more damage with a keyboard than with a bomb”. The term ‘cyber crime’ has been evolved from two words ‘cyber’ and ‘crime’. ‘Crime’ is more or less known to each individual on his own stand point, while ‘cyber’ is almost vague in meaning to the same. So if any time anybody uses the prefix ‘cyber’, we simply mean, he is talking about something is doing online or there has certain networking system. Actually anything related to Internet falls under the cyber category. Computer crime or cyber crime is a form of crime where the Internet or computers are used as a medium to commit crime. Issues surrounding this type of crime have become......

Cyber Crime

...Cyber crime: The internet has become a part of our everyday lifestyle and made it easier for us in many ways. Although like many things in life, it also has its disadvantages as well. One of the major disadvantages with the internet is cybercrime. Cyber crime is the latest and perhaps the most complicated problem in the cyber world. The term “Cyber Crime” has nowhere been defined in any statute or Act passed or enacted by the Indian Parliament What exactly is cybercrime? A simple way to put it is, any crimes committed on the internet. It can range from something like illegally downloading music from the internet to cyber-terrorism. Any criminal activity that uses a computer either as an instrumentality, target or a means for perpetuating further crimes comes within the ambit of cyber crime. It is rapidly evolving from simple e-mail mischief where offenders send obscene e-mail, to more serious offences like theft of information, e-mail bombing to crashing servers etc. The types of cyber crimes include pornography, cyber fraud, defamation, cyber stalking, harassment, IPR theft, data hostage, money laundering, phishing, e-mail bombing, cyber war, illegal EFT. Conclusion There will always be new and unexpected challenges to stay ahead of cyber criminals and cyber terrorists but we can win only through partnership and collaboration of both individuals and government. There is much we can do to ensure a safe, secure and trustworthy computing environment. It is crucial not...

Cyber-Crime

...“Cyber-crime,” which refers to any criminal activity committed with the aid of or in the arena of the Internet and similar telecommunications, is both a new incarnation of old crimes through a new medium, and a unique entity all its own. It differs from physical crime in four ways. It is easy to commit, requiring minimal resources for great potential damage, being committable in a jurisdiction in which the perpetrator is not physically present, and often, not being entirely clearly illegal. A cyber crime that was committed recently is the “Gozi” virus that infected a million computers including NASA computers and bank computers. The Gozi virus is also known as a Trojan. It infiltrated businesses the way a wooden horse rolled into Troy. The wooden horses, in this case, are the employees of businesses who click on suspicious links in an e-mail, or fail to recognize a phony banking website when they see one. The virus and other malicious software infected individuals' and businesses' computers, and then stole log-in information for online banking and other accounts. One program even imitated a bank's website, tricking users into giving away their PINs and personal information, such as their mothers' maiden names. The worms and viruses released in the twenty first century posses a higher impact in terms of financial damage and loss of productivity. Today’s sophisticated attacks posses a greater damage potential. Hackers are no longer enthusiastic, cyber......

...CYBER CRIME Application Paper Molly Flannery DeVry University CYBER CRIME Application Paper Cyber crime is a crime committed online, as opposed to the physical world. In a business setting, cyber crime can occur in several instances: scams, identity theft, white-collar fraud, check or credit/debit card fraud, retail fraud, auction fraud, employment fraud, etc. (Miller & Jentz, 2012) Credit-card crime is more likely to hurt merchants and credit-card issuers than the consumer. The financial burden shifts from the consumer to the either the merchant or the issuer when purchases are made with stolen credit card numbers. (Miller & Jentz, 2012) My particular world of business consists of healthcare-related information. For example, being a healthcare carrier, our company stores health information as well as personal information. Names, social security numbers, health diagnoses, etc., are readily available throughout our organization. Not only is this information extremely important to protect, but in the event of someone having a personal health policy, they may have banking information in our system as well in order to automatically have their monthly premiums deducted. This information can consist of credit card numbers and/or bank account and routing numbers. If someone outside the company were to hack into the system, they would have a plethora of information to choose from. Additionally, if we happened to have a celebrity or otherwise......

...Cyber-crimes: A Practical Approach to the Application of Federal Computer Crime Laws Eric J. Sinrod† and William P. Reilly†† I. Introduction Cyber-crime, once the domain of disaffected genius teenagers as portrayed in the movies “War Games” and “Hackers,” has grown into a mature and sophisticated threat to the open nature of the Internet. “Cyber-criminals,” like their non-virtual traditional criminal counterparts, seek opportunity and are attracted to vacuums in law enforcement. The news media is filled with reports of debilitating denial of service attacks, defaced web sites, and new computer viruses worming their way through the nation’s computers. However, there are countless other cyber-crimes that are not made public due to private industry’s reluctance to publicize its vulnerability and the government’s concern for security.[1] Along with the phenomenal growth of the Internet has come the growth of cyber-crime opportunities.[2] As a result of rapid adoption of the Internet globally, computer crimes include not only hacking and cracking, but now also include extortion, child pornography, money laundering, fraud, software pirating, and corporate espionage, to name a few.[3] Law enforcement officials have been frustrated by the inability of legislators to keep cyber-crime legislation ahead of the fast-moving technological curve.[4] At the same time, legislators face the need to balance the competing interests between individual rights, such as privacy...

Once our government finds out about cybercrimes usually they find more than what they were looking for to begin with. In the past there have been some cybercrime laws that were insufficient but the law enforcement agencies and government have proposed many plans to help fight cybercrime. Once a cybercrime has been committed and traced back to the hacker punishment is required. “Cybercrime must be dealt with very seriously because it causes a lot of damage to businesses and the actual punishment should depend on the type of fraud used.

...Cyber Crimes Cyber crimes are on some of the hardest crimes for the police to stop and catch the perpetrators because they can commit a crime in one state or country and physically be in another state or country. While the invention of the Internet has had great affects on the growth of technology, it has also given criminals an extremely large place to hide in and the laws are still trying to catch up with the growth of technology.
