However, with the advancement in technology and its wide use, a new type of bullying has developed, cyberbullying, which is when a person uses technology and/or electronic devices to bully another person, typically by sending messages or posting comments of an intimidating or threatening nature. What makes cyber-bullying much more dangerous than regular bullying is that because if it on the internet, it will stay there for a long time and for everyone to see. What’s worse, is that the bully can easily hide under a different name or profile, making it harder to find out who is responsible in terms of facing consequences. It is very important to delete cyberbullying because when teenagers begin to abuse the convenience of the internet to harass others, it creates a very dangerous environment that extends outside the classroom or school. When someone is being harassed or embarrassed online, it reaches far outside of their world, and strangers all

Modest Proposal Cyber bullying is an issue seen nationwide that is dangerously overlooked. Cyber bullying takes place over social networks such as Facebook and Twitter and over text messaging. Bullies are known to go after a group or person with “lower power”. There has been a rise in cyber bullying over the past few years and not nearly enough precautions are being taken to prevent this issue. Cyber bullying is legally defined as actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group that is intended to harm another or others.
It seems as if cyber-bullying is a cruel way to treat someone. Any identity can be created on the Internet and that could be a good thing or a bad thing. Many things happen on the web and people hurt certain ones and do not get the punishment they should. Cyber-bullying has led to murders including suicides. The Internet is a huge tool when it comes to the subject taunting others.
An Anon would post the MySpace of a person he didn't like and they would hack his profile, filling it with taboo pornographic images. The harassment extended to the real world, where they would leave threatening voicemails and send “black faxes” to the target's homes. One instance was reported on KTTV, a Fox affiliate in California, but the occurrences of cyber-bullying were common. Their first foray into activism was the raid on Hal Turner's (a white supremacist and Holocaust denier) radio show. After bandwidth attacks and constant prank calls to the show, Turner went off the

Technology has changed a lot with in past teen years, there is much more important information on the web and on the clouds such as personal information, company or business documents, all of our financial records and many more, and there are many unethical people out there that are trying to take an advantage of these great technology’s and still from others! Network probes are very easy ways to detecting intrusions.
Bullying victims can have a lot of stress added on and it can lead to retaliation such as school shootings as well as suicide. Cyber bullying is the more modern type of bullying and some argue that it's the most harmful. When it comes to cyber bullying anyone can become the bully. The small scrawny kid can be just as harmful as the big kid on the playground. Cyber bullying can have a longer lasting effect on the victim.
An example of social network is Facebook, where people post personal information about themselves. Often, without modifying privacy settings and making information being visible by others. However, to protect ourselves from outsiders, we can simply go to privacy setting and change the audience to family and closest friends. Hackers are “people who gain unauthorized access to computers or networks” (Williams & Sawyer, 2013, p. 359). They break into our computer for several reasons but mainly to acquire personal information for financial gain, shut down hardware, steal people’s credit information, and destroy data.

Advance fee fraud occurs when criminals convince the victim to pay a fee to receive an item worth value but then the item is not delivered to the victim. An overpayment fraud is an incident in which the victim receives money that is not valid, and deposits this into their account, and sends the excess or a certain percentage to the sender (Internet Crime Report Center). According to Dr. Larry Ponemon, founder and chairman of the Ponemon Institute, “every corporation is vulnerable to thousands of cyber-attacks that occur daily across all industries, causing information theft, disruption to business operations and serious financial loss,” (Fucanan, 2010). According to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute the most common threats to corporations include theft of intellectual property, compromises to bank accounts (phishing), distribution of viruses, and confidential information leaked onto the internet (Martinez-Cabrera, 2010).
