PC Security – a brief on cyber crimes

Using a PC is not a big deal these days. The advanced technology has made it simpler for a new user to learn how to use a PC and for an everyday user to adapt to the changes. But how far are we there when it comes to PC security? Well! The answer to this question is not one but many. There are various ways on how a PC security can be breached and so are there ways to ensure PC protection. But not everyone is aware about every aspect of it and how to handle such situations.

So let us today throw some light on a widely known term used for PC security breach, i.e. Cyber Crimes. There are various types of cyber crimes and it can be defined as “any unlawful act or an illegal behavior committed against an individual or a group, by the means of electronic/computer network, leading to destruction or defamation of computer security, user’s identity or anything tangible or intangible, personally possessed by the user”.

Some common types of cyber crimes may include:
  • Cyber Defamation
  • Pornography
  • Credit Card Frauds
  • Electronic Vandalism or Sabotage
  • Hacking
  • E-mail Spoofing, Phishing& Spam
  • Virus/Worm Diffusion
  • Cyber Stalking
  • Intellectual Property Theft

  • Money Laundering
  • Cyber Terrorism 
  • Sales & Investment Frauds and more…

Not all of the above can be avoided 100% from happening to a user. But there can always be certain measures or precautions one can take to avoid such things and ensure PC security.
