Cyber crime is addressed in the broadest sense, in a way that most emerging crimes today involve the use of information technology. The terms „Computer Crime‟, „Computer Related Crimes‟, „Internet Crime‟, „Online Crimes‟, „Hi-Tech Crimes‟, „Information Technology Crime‟, and „Cyber Crimes‟ are being used interchangeably.

Cyber crime is hard to detect, thus giving the perpetrators plenty of time to flee the area in which the crime was committed, because of this fact the criminals can be in another country far away from the scene of the crime by the time it is detected. Cyber crimes differ from most terrestrial crimes in four ways. They are easy to learn how to commit; they require few resources relative to the potential damage caused; they can be committed in a jurisdiction without being physically present in it; and they are often not clearly illegal.

The development of information technology and the widening usage of the Internet have made it possible for cyber crimes to happen. Some people argue that cyber crime gives advantages to certain individuals because it gives them an opportunity to enhance their computer skills and make a profit out of it. However, that is far from truth. In reality, cyber crime kills e-commerce industry as seen through the unleashing of viruses, fraud, and variety of tools available on the net and unauthorized use of computers.
