Networks and personal computers are under continuous assault from hackers. The types of attacks vary widely in complexity and severity, but hackers generally have one of three motives for compromising a network (Judge, 2014):
- Financial fraud
- Political reasons
- Personal reasons
Search the internet to find an example of a hacking activity or situation that represents a morally, ethically, or criminally ambiguous situation, but is different from any examples you used in other assignments for this course.
Write a critical essay that meets the following requirements:
- Cite and briefly describe your example.
- Apply what you have learned from the course to this point to identify arguments both in support of and critical of the behavior of the attackers.
- Describe and explain the relationships among morality, ethics, law, and crime as they intersect in the case example that you have identified.
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length with document and citation formatting per APA guidelines.
