Computer security has become a big issue for major organizations, but what about the ordinary person with a personal computer at home. A personal computer is use to make life easier by paying bills on-line, keeping track of personal information and allowing the average person a way to do personal business or purchases. So has life become easier by using the computer to handle those day to day routines? Many would agree that it has made life somewhat easier, but what about the dangers of storing personal information. The fact is that there are many types of computer security threats for those using a personal computer. I will explain many types of threats and the way they are employ to

How Computer Fraud and Abuse Evolved
Before 1984 there was little that could be done about computer fraud. In 1984 the Counterfeit Access Device and Computer Fraud and Abuse Act was the first legislation on computer fraud. The act made it a misdemeanor to illegally retrieve financial and credit information by computer. Also, the act made it illegal to cause harm to other computer systems. Around this time, what constitutes computer crime was still an ongoing discussion. As a Federal Act, only half of the states passed similar statues. (History of Computer Crime)
The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act can be violated in two ways, either by an outsider trespasses into a computer or by

A computer network, often simply referred to as a network, is a collection of computers and devices interconnected by communications channels that facilitate communications and allows sharing of resources and information among interconnected devices. Computer networking or Data communications (Datacom) is the engineering discipline concerned with the computer networks. Computer networking is sometimes considered a sub-discipline of electrical engineering , telecommunications, computer science, information technology and computer engineering since it relies heavily upon the theoretical and practical application of these scientific and engineering disciplines.

By Gavin Viall
It was said that the reason for information systems is to get the right information to the right person or people at the right time, and the right amount, and in the right format. One of the main goals in an information system is to process data into information. So Data input becomes very important. We are going to look at five situations, and determine which method of data input works best for that situation. The input devices for operating systems are as follows Keyboard, mouse, microphone, camera, video, touch screen, pen and pad. Output devices are hardware that allows the computer to communicate to the end user. The output

Computer security is the process of detecting unauthorised use of your computer or PC . As the old saying goes “prevention is better than cure” , going by this we realise that if we learn about the possible loopholes in the security we can prevent it in the first place.
But the big question is 'why should i care about my computer security?' . We use computers for everything from banking and investing to shopping and communicating with others through email or chat programs.Although we may not consider our communiction a 'top secret' ,but you dont want others to eavesdrop on you conversations, read your mails, use your computer to attack

The Penetration Attack:
This type of attack involves breaking into a system using the known security flaws of the system. Once the intruder has penetrated the system he has access to the entire systems resources. Acting as an authorized user the intruder can perform any task that suits his needs. Data can be altered, removed, or copied. Viruses and Trojan Horses can be inserted. And the system can be forced to perform functions without the owners’ knowledge or permission.

In history, we read of “ages”, like the “Ancient Age”, the “Medieval Age”, and the “Modern Age”. There is only one name that fits the 21st century: the “Computer Age.” Today, Computers are used in almost all domains of life. Though created by man, they seem to rule the world. My lasting curiosity about this dominance coupled with my growing experience in the IT industry have led to my decision to undertake a master’s in Computer Science.

The history of the computer can be dated back for years and years and there is still much more to learn and know as we advance our knowledge with this technology. Webster's Dictionary defines computer as, “any programmable electronic device that can store, retrieve, and process data” (A brief 2004).
The core word compute in computer has been termed for over 2000 years. In the beginning, a wooden rack holding strings by two horizontal bars was the very first calculator recorded. The beads were manually moved around by the user and were only used by the user who knew the rules of programming in order for the wooden calculator to be accurate. It is said that

But literally what is computer? A computer is a general purpose device that can be programmed to carry out a set of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. Since a sequence of operations can be readily changed, the computer can solve more than one kind of problem.
Conventionally, a computer consists of at least one processing element, typically a central processing unit (CPU), and some form of memory. The processing element carries out arithmetic and logic operations, and a sequencing
