Cybercrime and information crime

The most dangerous category of virus writers are lone hackers or groups of hackers who create malicious programs to use them for criminal purposes. These cybercriminals create computer viruses and Trojans that are capable of:

steal access codes to bank accounts

advertise products or services on the victim’s computer

illegally use the resources of an infected computer to develop and carry out network attacks (also called DDoS attacks)
