In India Computer crime is dealt with under the Information Technology Act 2000, but the act has not defined Computer Crime, if I am not misteken, but the offences are provided under chapter XI from section 65 to 78 of the said Act. But Computer Crime has been broadly defined as any illegal act that involves a computer systems, or its applications. It is any intentional act associated in any way with computers where a victim suffered or could have suffered a loss, and prepetrator made or could have  made a gain. The United states department of Justice provides another definition, stating that computer crime is any illegal act for which knowledge of computer technolofy is essential for either its preperation, investigation, or prosecution.
