Cyber crime is the deadliest epidemic confronting our planet in this millennium. A cyber criminal can destroy websites and portals by hacking and planting viruses, carry out online frauds by transferring funds from one corner of the globe to another, gain access to highly confidential and sensitive information cause harassment by e-mail threats or obscene material, play tax frauds, indulge in cyber pornography involving children and commit innumerable other crimes on the internet. It is said that none is secure in the cyber world. People with intelligence have been grossly misusing this aspect of internet to perpetuate illegal acts in cyber space. The field of cyber crime is just emerging and new forms of criminal activities in cyber space are coming to the forefront with the passing of each new day. Cyber crimes may range from ‘the merely annoying’ to ‘the catastrophic’. The only possible step to make people aware of their rights and duties is to make the laws more stringent to keep a check on crimes.
