“Just what are Computer or Cyber-Crimes?”

​In Federal prosecutions, Computer-Cyber Crimes typically involve instances where a
computer network, or individual computer, is a target of illegal activity and where such
activity is launched or facilitated by another computer.
​Criminal activity accomplished by a computer may include simple fraud schemes,
production of false identification, distribution of copyrighted material and distribution or
collection of child pornography.
Today, the FBI (and often, Homeland Security Investigations), regularly conducts
computer forensic examination of electronic devices and computer generated data.  The
so-called "data dump" is almost always a part and parcel of these cases.
The following are the most commonly used statutes by the FBI in investigating and
prosecuting computer crimes or cyber-crimes:
