DEFCON to teach children to hack at 2018 conference

There are many actions that are criminal in the eyes of the law, but sometimes, taking these actions is how law enforcement learns to fight back.

Internet crimes: Federal crimes worth understanding

Internet crimes include numerous actions. They may include hacking a government computer, using another person's identity online or stealing credit cards for online purchases. Internet crimes could include selling a product and never shipping it, invading someone's privacy by reading their emails and other acts.

-You love to go online and shop, but recently, you've been shut out of your account. The company called and said it blocked your purchases because you triggered an alert. Several days later, you were stopped by the police on your way into your house, accused of stealing someone else's credit-card information.

Cybercrimes are interesting, because while they may also involve crimes that take place in the real world, they primarily take place online. Someone may hack into your email and get your credit card numbers before using them to make a purchase online, or someone might steal your identity and make a real estate purchase before you know you've been a victim of fraud at all.
