Hacking is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. The truth is that no computing device on the planet is really safe from hackers. Any device on the planet can be compromised. According to Section 66 of the IT Act, 2000. hacking is classified as any person who removes, deletes, or alters any information residing in a computer resource or diminishes its value or usefulness or affects it injuriously by any means with the intent to cause or knowing that he is likely to cause unlawful loss or harm to the public or any person who destroys, deletes, or alters any information residing in a computer resource or diminishes its value or utility or affects it. In today's world, crime on the computer-generated superhighway is a modern phenomenon. We cannot imagine any intellectual or necessary job in our everyday lives without Information Technology. However, deviants and terrorists are abusing and misusing this new multimedia technology. Cyber hacker attacks on the Bhaba Atomic Energy Centre, AIIMS, and the World Trade Center, for example, have resulted in more human life being lost than conventional offences. As a result, in order to protect our everyday lives, businesses, and intellectual property, we must consider the protection and regulation of cyber-crimes, especially the most dangerous of which is cyber hacking.
