Computer crimes are separated into two categories: crimes committed using a computer, and crimes where a computer or a network is the target. The former category includes crimes such as storing records of fraud, producing false identification, reproducing and distributing copyright material, collecting and distributing child pornography. Crimes where computers are the targets, on the other hand, can result in damage or alteration to the computer system. Computers which have been compromised, as a result, may be used to launch attacks on other computers or networks.
