Crimes against individuals: These are called personal Internet crimes, such as identity theft, e-mail, the theft of a subscription to a Web site, and the illegal misappropriation of an identity through the Internet in order to exploit that identity or conceal the identity of the offender to facilitate the crime. Crimes against property: The transfer of malicious software contained in some application, service or other programs, in order to destroy the hardware or software owned by companies, government agencies, banks or even personal property. Crimes against governments: Attacking official websites and government network systems that use these applications at the local and international levels, such as terrorist attacks on the Internet, are focused on destroying infrastructure and attacking computer networks, often with a political aim.
