As the Internet grows and expands, so do instances of hacking and/or illegal access. Only in the digital age, would things like the “Bieber ruse” be possible and carried out. While the instances of cyber crime increase, so will the instances of aggressive or wrongful prosecutions. In response to widespread hacking, the federal government’s investigation and indictment for alleged
Internet crimes has responded to the influx. The government takes hacking seriously, and that is reflected by the aggressiveness with which it prosecutes the crimes.

Sometimes people with extensive computer skills, like computer programmers and/or professional hackers, make errors in judgment — often in stressful times. While there are organized hacker groups, most of the time efforts are not concerted. Even if there has not been an error in judgement, some may be wrongly accused of crimes of which they are innocent. The anonymity of the internet, or lack thereof, can easily give rise to a situation where it is made to look as if someone committed a crime, when in fact they did not. The advent of proxying, or using someone else’s computer by proxy, can make it look as if a specific act took place from a specific ip address.
As most of these crimes cross state lines via the internet, hacking or cyber crimes are often charged at the federal triggering the federal sentencing guidelines.
Cyber crimes can include many different activities including:
Fraudulent mass marketing/product misrepresentation

Conducting illegal business activities over the Internet
Breaking into computers to fraudulently obtain information such as bank account numbers
Spreading a computer virus
