Google is one of the 5 most popular sites on the internet with more than 380 million unique users per month (Nielsen/NetRatings 8/05).

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science – Internet, New Technologies, Webster University, course: ITM 5000 07, language: English, abstract: The Internet has brought the world closer than ever, especially, with the ease in sharing information. A post online from Alpine, Texas can be accessible almost immediately by someone in Accra, Ghana and at the same time with the person in Bangalore, India. As much as there is access to the Internet, authorized users can access information/data irrespective of their location. Business activities are now performed globally and efficiently in comfort; buyers and sellers do business without any constraints. Business supporting activities such as paying and receiving of cash, shipping of goods, and other related activities have now been automated in the cyberspace. The most reliable resource vault or knowledge center accessible by all is the Internet; it could even be referred to as one of mankind's greatest achievement. However, it has also made all users including governments, corporate institutions and business entities exposed and vulnerable to numerous cyber crimes. The risk of losing personal data or theft of an important data like customer data from an organization by cyber criminals has become very high. Cyber security remains the biggest challenge faced by all especially governments and organizations.

The Internet is often called a superhighway, but it may be more analogous to a city: an immense tangle of streets, highways, and interchanges, lined with homes and businesses, playgrounds and theatres. We may not physically live in this city, but most of us spend a lot of time there, and even pay rents and fees to hold property in it.

But the Internet is not a city of the 21st century. Jeffrey Hunker, an internationally known expert in cyber-security and counter-terrorism policy, argues that the Internet of today is, in many ways, equivalent to the burgeoning cities of the early Industrial Revolution: teeming with energy but also with new and previously unimagined dangers, and lacking the technical and political infrastructures to deal with these problems. In a world where change of our own making has led to unexpected consequences, why have we failed, at our own peril, to address these consequences?

Rootkits are the ultimate backdoor, giving hackers ongoing and virtually undetectable access to the systems they exploit. Now, two of the world's leading experts have written the first comprehensive guide to rootkits: what they are, how they work, how to build them, and how to detect them.
