As the internet has evolved it is now a part of many people’s daily lives and with that, many could not function or conduct their daily business or lives without it. It is impressive that we can now communicate and even see someone all the way across the country with just a few clicks of a mouse. But as technology changes and progresses seemingly for the good, many will always find ways to exploit technology and use it with the intent of committing crime, turning a positive tool into a negative one. As such the negative side of the World Wide Web, cybercrime has evolved as just one of the major disadvantages of the internet. Cybercrime itself is a broad term and can and does include any crime that is committed via the internet or computer network including seemingly minor acts as downloading music, to denial of service attacks, to even acts of cyber-terrorism. With the newly formed threat of cybercrime has also come new ways for law enforcement to attack and prevent it as well but with limited resources not much can be changed but to continue to prevent new methods from approaching the cybercrime world. This is not only just in our own neighborhoods but is at an international scale. This paper generates the insight about the overall rise of cybercrime among our societies. The main focus of this paper is to describe the types of computer crimes and its effects on individuals and businesses.
...at proposed a new Worm Interaction Model which is based upon and extending beyond the epidemic model focusing on random-scan worm interactions. It proposes a new set of metrics to quantify effectiveness of one worm terminating other worm and validate worm interaction model using simulations. This paper also provides the first work to characterize and investigate worm interactions of random-scan worms in multi-hop networks (Tanachaiwiwa and Helmy, 2007). For the best possible solution against cyber attack, researchers use Mathematical modeling as a tool to understand and identify the problems of cyber war (Chilachava and Kereselidze, 2009). Such kind of modeling is supposed to help in better understanding of the problem, but to allow such models to be practically workable, it is extremely important to provide a quantitative interface to the problem through the model.
In todays fast pace world of technology many of us leave ourselves vulnerable to become victims of a cybercrime. With people using the internet to do everything from paying bills, personal banking, and on-line shopping their financial and personal information is available at the stroke of a key to a hacker. Often someone is unaware that they have been attacked and had their information stolen. The use of the internet has grown exorbitantly throughout the world. Nelson Online reported that as of December 31, 2014, there were 360,985,492 users of the internet throughout the world. (2015) With so many users in so many countries accessing the internet, prosecuting cybercrimes is nearly impossible.

”Attacks implemented by cyber terrorists via information systems to (1) significantly interfere with the political, social or economic functioning of a critically important group or organization of a nation, or (2) induce physical violence and/or create panic. We define hackers as individuals who (1) wish to access/modify data, files, and resources without having the necessary authorization to do so, and/or (2) wish to block services to authorized users. Cyber terrorists are individuals or groups who utilize computing and networking technologies to terrorize. In this paper, we study the behaviors of two groups of hackers: cyber terrorists and common hackers" (Hua & Bapna 2013).
In the present days Hacking is making an enormous issue, for example on MasterCard’s, online sites, grounds LANs. There is evidence that, in spite of the large amount of security dangers are prompts the hacking on ground LAN systems. Intrusion Detection test, is a test which is performed in campus entrance test routines and the results, investigated. Moreover, the objectives were to identify different form of network attacks and methods used to capture the hacking. This essay argues that in any LAN, it is important to minimize the sum and sorts of data spilled outside the LAN and that LAN overseers brought to always perform vigilantly LAN observing. By utilizing the data accumulated from interruption recognition by entrance test, one can make a system safe, in order to draw in numerous potential clients to impart system assets. With a conventional antivirus way out may not be sufficient to guard against a number of the most recent forms of malware. Thus, beneficiaries of this study are industry, computer security officials, law enforcement agencies, and in general anyone interested in better understanding cybercrime from the offender point of view.
Computer hackers use botnets or ‘zombie’ computers to infiltrate high security computer servers and minimize attempts to be caught. A botnet is a collection of internet-connected computers that are controlled by a computer hacker that did the original infecting. “As well as using the computers they land on to spread themselves further, they're designed to take control of them, either to steal confidential user information or to convert them into remote-controlled 'zombie...

Within the last decade, the internet has proven to be the most efficient way to complete tasks in today’s society. Every major business in today’s society relies on the internet to conduct business. Though the internet is a useful tool, our reliability on it opens up the door for cyber-attacks that can be detrimental to business as a whole. One example of a cyber-attacks that have recently started becoming more prevalent are DDoS attacks. Recently, DDoS attacks have been a rising issue for businesses owners who run their own servers, such as video game companies and other high profile web servers, including banks and other credit card payment gateways.

“ Prevention is better than cure ”, if computer users are aware of Malware attacks, they may prevent those attacks . So, in this research paper i am going to focus on Malware and Protecting Against Malware.
