The Misuse of Computers

There are many types of cybercrime. When it comes to the misuse of a computer, there are many ways that a computer can be misused. A computer could be defined as a traditional desktop or laptop, or it could be a computing machine such as a cell phone or the use of a digital device. Broadly, these crimes divide into traditional crimes that feature computers and crimes that center on a computer.

Crimes Featuring Computers

Computers have allowed classic crimes such as fraud or theft to be performed from half a world away. Disreputable websites and disingenuous individuals can exploit ignorance or overconfidence to steal money, identities, or property. The most common type of theft online is identity theft. Identity theft can be stealing credit card information or stealing personal information in order to impersonate an individual. These crimes will often be charged the same as their non-digital counterparts, but an additional charge of mail or wire fraud may be added if the perpetrator and the victim are in different states.

Computer-centric Crimes

Some crimes cannot be committed without a computer. These crimes often fall into the domain of hacking. Hacking is defined as using a computer to gain unauthorized access to a system that they should not have access to. The system could be a business’ network, a personal device, or a digital repository of information. Hackers often use their abilities to break into financial systems using information gathered from victims in order to siphon money or information. Often personally identifying information is as common of a target as money because that personally identifying information can turn around and be sold.

Another form of cybercrime is the dissemination of viruses. A computer virus can have a number of functions. Some viruses encode information in a cypher that is then destroyed in order to make certain information unobtainable. Other viruses will lock a device until a ransom is paid in order to unlock the device. Knowingly sending a virus for the purpose of destroying files or exploiting victims is a crime.

Giving You The Advocacy You Deserve

Internet Crimes Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is an internet crime?

Internet crimes cover a number of acts that focus on the misuse of computers in acts that break the law. There are computer crimes that are simply normal crimes with a computer, such as identity theft, and there are unique crimes that are centered on the misuse of a computer such as hacking or sending viruses to victims.

2. Who can defend me against an internet crime?

If you have been accused of a cybercrime, as with any other criminal charge, you will need the help of an experienced criminal law attorney. When choosing a criminal defense attorney, individuals may accept the public defense attorney, but for the best possible outcome it may be necessary to retain a private criminal defense attorney. A private criminal defense attorney can devote more resources to a single case than a public defender can and that can result in better outcomes for clients.
