Five facts about cyber crime
Cyber crime is increasing and online crooks are becoming more sophisticated in the way they attack computer networks either for financial gain or to make a name for themselves.
Five cyber crime facts:
- One of the most notorious hackers was Kevin Mitnick who was jailed for five years after he was caught in 1995. Mitnick had broken into thousands of computer networks and was on the run for many years. He kept ahead of police by using a scanner to pick up their radio transmissions when they were closing in on him.
- A Canadian teenager who called himself "Mafiaboy" attacked major Internet companies like eBay, Amazon and Yahoo from his bedroom in 2000. He caused over 1.5 billion of dollars of damage to their Web sites and was jailed for eight months in a youth detention centre.
