These hackers come out of goal with a ready market for their expertise, and great financial rewards. The explosion of the Internet use, and networks around the world have brought with it a need for greater security consciousness amongst its users and systems operation managers. Technology needs to be constantly updated in the war against the ever-growing insidious and malicious hacker. Precis of 'Hackers: Taking a byte out of computer crime' by W. Roush. Roush discusses the changing face of computer crime with the advent of the modem and stricter laws.

While it is wrong to stereotype hackers as evil people with malicious criminal intentions, they cannot be stereotyped as compassionate freedom fighters as the hackers like to see themselves. Hackers must also realize that the actions of criminals will always reflect poorly on the hacker community as a whole, until the hacker community tries to police itself, which will never happen. Their actions are by definition, criminal.

In dealing with other country involves a lot of bureaucracy but also a committed government.
Tracing the Source of Denial of Service Attacks Abstract: Denial of service attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent and serious, yet the anonymity that these attacks affords the hacker provides no means for a victim to trace the attack. The weakness of the TCP/IP protocol allows for this anonymity, yet it would be very difficult to change this protocol. Savage, Wetherall, Karlin, and Anderson present a method for tracing back the source IP address and network path of denial of service attacks. As the internet becomes increasingly vital to the everyday life of millions of people around the world, it also becomes increasingly vulnerable to hackers. Through forcing servers or web sites to shut down, hackers have the ability to affect almost every aspect of modern society; finances, safety, education, and many others.
After the disclosures by Edward Snowden turned a critical eye to the NSA many people questioned the legality of the acts. The NSA claimed that their work was legal and had prevented many terrorist plots. However, evidence of only four plots was ever found. Even if the acts were founded in law, they still angered large numbers of citizens. Many citizens do not care if the spying is legal, believing that it is morally wrong.
I want to do my research paper on Cyber Terrorism because I want to stress to people that this is a big problem and will become worse in the future since everything is being done in Cyber Space these days. In this research paper, I will prove that hackers gain power and publicity with crimes they commit through cyber space. And it is easy for even amateur hackers to gain information and money from powerful organization without any detection or suspicion. Hacking is also a costly and destructive force for people in Cyber Space. Cyber Terrorism is such a destructive force that our country lost millions of dollars to hacking terrorists from other countries.
A hacker is a hacker and seen as a criminal in the eyes of the law. Any true hackers should seek knowledge in a better manner. Many ex-hackers have found jobs as security advisors for large corporations. A possible solution to stopping the widespread computer underground would be to offer more courses in school relating to networking and system security. This would not only teach students system analysis, but also ethics.
As the internet grows vastly the more dangerous it becomes to its users. With the new advances in technology cyberspace fraud has been increasing. These new advances have made the internet vulnerable to various kinds of e-commerce fraud. New techniques to detect and prevent cyber fraud have been developed to discover and prevent criminals before the fact, rather than after the damage have been done. Individuals and businesses should recognize each new cyber attack and make themselves aware of the consequences each attack can create.
Contrary to popular belief, not only do you not have to be smart to be a hacker, you do not even need to know much about computers. Modern day hacking usually ends in destruction of other peoples property, or changing important private information. Also, as stated by a 42-year-old security agent in San Francisco, “ ‘Hacking in the 1960s and 1970s was a little more like gentlemanly exploring than it was taking things from people” ’(Weise). These days hackers cannot call themselves hackers without the threat of being called a “hacker wanna-be” or a “script kiddie.” A “hacker wanna-be” is the same thing as script kiddie, but is another slang term for a person who uses guess-work and programs that he did not write (Weise). Although, most people think of a hacker as someone who breaks into computers and sends viruses, there are several different types of hackers, broken up into three different groups.
The history of hacking gives us a glimpse of what hackers can do to hurt individuals and organizations. It would also show us what techniques and predict future behavior. Hacking is a crime that people and businesses need to deal with every day. Hackers create problems for companies by finding bugs and weak vulnerabilities to steal company secrets or customer information. To keep the customers’ information secure, companies spend a fortune to make it tight as possible to not allow attackers.
