The Computer Misuse Act is designed to protect computer users against willful attacks and theft of information. Offences under the act include hacking, unauthorized access to computer systems and purposefully spreading malicious and damaging software (malware), such as viruses. The act makes it an offence to access or even attempt to access a computer system without the appropriate authorization. Therefore, even if a hacker tries to get into a system but is unsuccessful they can be prosecuted using this law. The act also outlaws “hacking” software, such as packet sniffers, that can be used to break into or discover ways to get into systems.

Anxiety is one ingredient that never misses in our day to day living. It is almost impossible to escape this unwelcome, constant companion that shows up whenever it is not needed. That is why you will never find someone who finds you worried about something and all they do is to fuel it by encouraging you to worry even the more.
