Cybercrime : Who Is To Be Blamed?

By Israel Chrislyte

Technology in the past and present years has proven to be a major catalyst for the development of many countries. This same technology too has been proven to have brought about some social vices and moral ills to the society. With technology, the circulation of pornography and other sexual materials has grown in leaps and bounds. With the advent of the internet, a new form of crime has evolved. The term "cybercrime" refers to all crimes committed using computer networks.
Countries like the USA, the UK and other European countries have all been ravaged with different forms of cyber crimes ranging from data theft to hacking of credit cards.
