Internet or cyber crimes are increasingly prevalent in this age of technology. These are crimes that are committed while using or through the internet. Since people feel a sense of anonymity while using the internet, they find it easy to commit crimes using the internet. These crimes can include illegal sale of prescription drugs or counterfeit drugs, identity theft, wire fraud, credit card fraud, copyright infringement, computer hacking, cyber stalking, and more serious crimes such as child pornography, illegal pornography, illegal gambling, kidnaping, or even murder.
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security also make prosecuting people who use computer intrusions, i.e., spyware, malware or viruses, to gain access to unauthorized data a top priority. These crimes can lead to charges of counter-terrorism or counterintelligence and can be seen as a threat to Homeland Security.
