The Internet continues to grow exponentially. It is estimated that over 1 billion people – one-sixth of humanity – will be on-line by 2005, two thirds of them abroad. Along with this increase in net users, has come an exponential increase in hacker attacks. Merkle (1998) relates that a hacker will most likely be a member of a cybergang that is “organized into “rings” or “cells” (p. 87). He further states: Why do people join? In cyberspace, the reasons can range from interest in disseminating underground computer information as a sort of “trading post” to exchanging illegally duplicated software or “warez.” Others may feel it necessary to travel in packs or “crews” for personal protection and/or to assault institutions or individuals far more effectively. They settle scores this way, both virtual and actual.
