Hello everybody!

You're using Internet maybe each day.

You think that's a free world, without any rule, any police, any law.

You're wrong. Did you hear about Cybercops?

Cybercops are law enforcement personnel whose beat is cyberspace ( (from "US Report to the President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection", 1997).

Did you know that a lot of states in the world have created, inside their polices and security agencies, some departments which are beating each day the "cybercrime"?

For example, in France, each citizen can give to the police up some cybercriminal stuffs here.

What are cybercrimes?

For Wikipedia, "Computer crime, cybercrime, e-crime, hi-tech crime or electronic crime generally refers to criminal activity where a computer or network is the source, tool, target, or place of a crime. These categories are not exclusive and many activities can be characterized as falling in one or more category. Additionally, although the terms computer crime and cybercrime are more properly restricted to describing criminal activity in which the computer or network is a necessary part of the crime, these terms are also sometimes used to include traditional crimes, such as fraud, theft, blackmail, forgery, and embezzlement, in which computers or networks are used to facilitate the illicit activity. As the use of computers has grown, computer crime has become more important.

So, some example of cybercrimes:

- illegal access (unauthorized access),

- illegal interception (by technical means of non-public transmissions of computer data to, from or within a computer system),

- data interference (unauthorized damaging, deletion, deterioration, alteration or suppression of computer data),

- systems interference (interfering with the functioning of a computer system by inputting, transmitting, damaging, deleting, deteriorating, altering or suppressing computer data),

- misuse of devices, forgery (ID theft), and electronic fraud.

So, little geek, if you had planned to get money (or others things) with cybercrime….forget it.

You'll be under arrest faster than you think.
