India is one of the very few countries to enact IT Act 2000 to combat cyber crimes. The Act has termed certain offences as hacking, publishing of obscene materials in the net, tampering the data etc. as punishable offences (Halder, 2006). However, there is lack of clarity and jurisdiction to keep pace with new forms of cyber crimes and lack of international treaties on cyber crimes to track the sources of crime originating in other countries.
