Cyber crime is the latest and perhaps the most  complicated problem in the cyber world. The term 'Cyber Crime' has nowhere been defined in any statute or act passed or enacted by the Indian parliament.
Any criminal activity that uses a computer either as an instrumentality, target or means of perpetuating further crimes comes in the ambit of cyber crimes.
It is rapidly evolving from simple E-mail mischief where offenders send obscene e-mail, to more serious offences like theft of information, e-mail bombing to crashing servers etc.
Cyber Crime in the act is neither comprehensive nor exhaustive. The information technology act has not dealt with cyber nuisance, cyber stalking and cyber defamation and so on.The problem is that most of the cases remain unreported due to the lack of awareness.
Capacity of human mind is unfathomable. It is not possible to eliminate cyber crime from the cyber space. However, it is quite possible to check them.
Users must try and save any electronic information trail on their computers, use of anti-virus software, firewalls, use of intrusion detection system etc. and further making the application of the laws more stringent to check crime.
