All About Cybercrime

Real World Case:  Website Hacking

Most people would have quit at this point, but he called a Federal attorney and had a subpoena prepared anyway.  There was always a chance, however slim, that he would be able to find his attacker.  His lawyer also told him that they would be able to collect damages wherever the trail ended:

The Montreal ISP – If the ISP failed to keep proper logs of system access they would be wholly responsible for the actions of the hacker.

The Phone Number Owner – If the owner of the telephone number that was used to access the ISP had an open relay wireless network, they would be responsible for the attack because they did not lock-down their Internet gateway.

The ISP User – The owner of the User ID and password could be held responsible for the actions used by their account.

This individual was not a litigious person, but he really wanted to see what happened.  To date, the Montreal ISP has failed to comply with the U. S. court order, and he is pursuing an “Order to Compel” from the U.S. Federal District Court.  He hopes to know who hacked into his web, but he suspects that it might take the better part of this decade.

One must wonder if the web hackers know how difficult it is for their victims to find them?

Next, information will be presented on other serious cyber-crimes and will illustrate how criminals use the web to harass, intimidate and threaten.
