Advancements in computerization and the growing use of computers in business, government, education, and the private sector has resulted in the expanding potential for criminal infiltration. The problems of computer crime are in great part attributable to the shortcomings of our criminal laws, which were written long before there was knowledge of computer crimes. Moreover, there is a reluctance of our legal establishments to adapt to the new technology's potential harm. This Note urges that new federal legislation be passed as a means to counteract future computer crimes.
