Cyber exploitation involves hacking into another computer and stealing data.
It is often referred to as a type of exploitation because it involves hacking a computer to take advantage of vulnerabilities in software, such as a software vulnerability or a vulnerability in a database.
It also includes the hacking of computers to extract information, such a data leak.
In addition, some cyber-related crimes, such in the case of the cyber-stealing of the emails of journalists, have been referred to by police as cyber-exploitation.
Cyber-exploit involves using a piece of software, known as malware, to take control of a computer, typically by hacking it or taking control of the operating system.
It may involve gaining access to a computer system, installing programs or even using malicious software to steal information, according to the National Cyber Security Centre.
The difference between exploitation and exploitation is that in the first case, the victims are the people or organisations who are the targets of the hacking, while in the second, the target is a business.
In some cases, hackers may use malware to steal money or other assets from the targeted organisation.
In other cases, the hackers may be used to disrupt the operations of targeted organisations or to gain access to them.
Cyber exploitation is more likely to be carried out by a small group of people who are more skilled in hacking than are the criminals who commit cyber-attacks.
In many cases, cyber-criminals are also targeting businesses.
According to the Department of Justice, the number of cyber-crime investigations rose by 6.5 per cent in 2015, compared with the year before.
In terms of overall cyber-criminal activity, there were 2,907 cyber-crimes recorded by police in 2015 and 2,828 the year earlier, the highest increase since the beginning of the decade.
There were 6,957 cyber-operations carried out in 2014, compared to 5,976 the year prior.
This has seen an increase of about 70 per cent since 2008, when there were 1,938 reported cyber-police operations.
The number of reported cyberattacks increased by almost 25 per cent between 2015 and 2016.
The most common cyber-operation reported by police is that of stealing information or data from computers, which involves using malware to infect a computer.
It has been known to target individuals, companies and businesses, as well as organisations.
It was also reported that cyber-hackers may use the internet to recruit individuals for cyber-incursions.
In a report, the Department for International Development said that in 2015 there were 4,921 cyber-assaults, including 6,854 cyber-terrorist incidents, an increase from 4,812 in 2014.
According the Ministry of Defence, the total number of attacks increased by 17 per cent compared with 2015.
Cybercrime victims can also include businesses that are not directly affected by the attack.
In 2015, there was 2,621 businesses that were targeted, which was a 4 per cent increase from the previous year.
The government said the number who were attacked was higher because of an increase in cyber-attacks targeting business, residential and other non-business sectors.
Cyberattacks are more likely when the victims do not have a physical presence in the country, as they are less likely to remain on the internet, the government said.
The latest report by the Department on Countering Cybercrime said that cybercriminals use different types of methods to carry out cyber-infringements, such being able to penetrate websites and networks, to gain entry to their networks and to access their information.
They also target businesses and individuals by creating a network of contacts through which they can exchange cyber-threat information, the report said.
Cybercriminals also use different techniques to exploit vulnerabilities in a computer or network, such using the Internet of Things (IoT), the report noted.
Cyber criminals use different tools to exploit vulnerable computers, such the use of trojans, malware, hacking techniques, social engineering, and other cyber-trafficking tactics, according the report.
Some cyber-security experts said the report’s findings could be of concern as it highlights the need to ensure that governments have adequate cyber security, particularly as cybercrime continues to grow.
Professor Mark Wilson from the Australian National University said the findings suggest there is a need for the government to improve cyber security policies.
“I don’t think the government is doing enough, or indeed any government, to make sure that the cyber security systems they have are really up to date and to make the systems more resilient and not just rely on cyber criminals,” Professor Wilson said.
“What’s really important to recognise is that we’ve had a number of successful prosecutions and convictions of cybercrimics in recent years.”
A spokesman for the Attorney-General’s Department said that although there had been an increase during the year, there had not been a major increase in cases of cyber crime.
