Police & Justice Act (2006) in the UK[edit]

Added the Police and Justice Act 2006 to list of U.K. laws on Cybercrime. The Police & Justice Act contains ammendments to the Computer Misuse Act, specifically to cover attacks against computers such as DOS attacks, which previously were hard to comvict due to not directly accessing data (Previously all crimes in CMA pertained to access, not attacks) Mysticaloctopus 12:42, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Doesn't this duplicate Computer_Crime?[edit]


Fighting cybercrime integrates systems thinking about computer crime countermeasures.

Permission to Include External Link[edit]

I'd like permission to include an external link to Computerworld's Cybercrime and Hacking Knowledge Center.


The following, appearing on the article's page, seems to be like someone adversiting for [t]his book.

""For a detailed analysis of Cyber Law in India; please refer to Guide to Cyber Laws by Rodney D. Ryder; Oxford University Press. Rodney D. Ryder is Partner with Fox Mandal Little, a full service commercial law firm. He is presently Advisor to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Government of India on the implementation of the Information Technology Act, 2000""

"Netspionage" and advertisements[edit]

I have removed this language:

such activities in the context of Corporations as opposed to Government organizations may involve traditional espionage and information warfare, technically, once such activities involve networks/computing facilities at any major point, the neologism "netspionage" (generally defined as "Network-enabled Espionage" -- c.f., ABA's definition, FBI's National Infrastructure Protection Center, and their Joint Broadcast discussion from Washington, DC, November 2000 regarding Netspionage) is becoming more common in usage.

In addition to the fact that this language is confusing (why is "Corporation" capitalized? Why the misuse of "c.f", etc.), "netspionage" is not "becoming more common in usage". A google of "netspionage" results in approximately only 900 hits of which more than two-thirds refer to a single 1999 book titled "Netspionage", a couple refer to older consultants reports, and a single conference and a miniscule number of news articles that picked up the phrase in the 1999-2001 time frame. There are no significant contemporary usages by anyone. This is just not a term used by anybody professionally involved in cybercrime at the moment, and the references linked to, particularly the photograph from the " broadcast for American Bar Association and FBI" are not useful.

I have also removed the "advertisement" for a book/lawfirm re cybercrime in India as violating Wikipedia guidelines. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Turner70 (talkcontribs) 18:30, 12 April 2007 (UTC).
