Increase in cybercrime against women during lockdown

May 01, 2020 23:30 IST

There has been a significant increase in cyber-crime against women in India, especially sextortion, during the Covid-19-induced lockdown with criminals targeting women online, through phishing scams. Sextortion is a widely used form of online spam attack where cybercriminals extort money or bitcoin, by claiming to have the receiver's compromising photos or evidence of their sexual activity.  According to the National Commission for Women data, 54 cybercrime complaints were received online in April in comparison to 37 complaints received online and by post in March, and 21 complaints in February. Cyber experts, however, said the numbers are just the "tip of the iceberg".
