Everywhere we go, technology is there. Technology is rising quickly. To mention one is, computer. As the use of computer has grown, computer crime has also become more important. Computer crime generally refers to criminal activity where a computer or network is the source, tool, target or place of crime. Computer crimes encompass unauthorized or illegal activities perpetrated via computer as well as the theft of computers and other technological hardware.
