ABSTRACT

The Internet is changing our world with ever-increasing volumes of information and data shared through the Web. Both e-commerce and search capabilities enable us to get what we need when we need it. However, not everything about the Web is positive. Sometimes we have to wonder if our world is really stepping forward. Instead we cannot help but say that we are stepping backward in some areas, such as in the problem of privacy leakage, rampant virus infections, cyberattacks, paralysis by network failures, growing net crimes, anticipated hacking, and technology homicide.
