Critical analysis on the concept of Cyber Phreaking as a Cyber Crime in the Cyber World-A Glimpse
Dr.J.Star, M.L., Ph.D
Phreaking is a routine word for breaking into a secure telecommunications network without the proper authorization. The word “phreaking” was first coined that, it referred to the act of investigating and manipulating phone networks by simulating calling tones in order to activate automated switches with whistles or special blue boxes created specifically for that purpose. Phreaks were often motivated by a desire to learn more about how phone networks worked rather than a goal to cheat telecommunications providers, according to most phone contact accounts. With the proliferation of mobile networks and the need to breach them via more blatantly illicit means, the term "phreaking" has come to be synonymous with “hacking”. In India the legal provisions related to hacking/ phreaking is covered under IT Act and Indian Penal Code. The main objective of this paper is to explain the phreaking as a cybercrime. This study also focussed through a light on theoretical framework on phreaking, and the legislations in India also what are the measures are needful to prevent the crime.
