Further malicious (malware) like Trojan horses and spyware can be sent into a system by hackers to carry out stealing, encrypting altering or hijacking and monitoring users' computer activity without their permission, he said.

K. Purushothaman, CEO, K7 Computing said the company was working closely with the Police Academies to create solutions.
