The meaning of cybercrime, its concept and types are covered in this research. It further deals with the liability in cybercrimes and whether the liability can be fixed to technology. By the late 1970s, the idea of ‘crime by computer’ had become a serious problem that called for new criminal laws, but technology’s constant growth and continuous penetration into the legal system had not yet had the same destructive impact as it does now. The word ‘cyber’ has a technological connotation. Cybercrime is the term used to describe crimes committed in this digital age. They are non-violent, bloodless crimes committed by computer users who have a solid understanding of how computer systems work and use intricate, technical techniques. There isn’t a single, accepted definition of cybercrime. The most common cybercrimes are click jacking, spyware, email fraud, social media fraud, banking fraud, ransomware assaults, cyber espionage, etc. There are many different sorts of cybercrimes. ‘Cyberspace Liability’ refers to the issues over liabilities incurred when communicating or conducting business online. The existing legal framework does not explicitly hold technology accountable for any cybercrimes that may be committed. The user, service provider, and person are largely responsible. There is currently no law that makes it possible for technology to be held accountable for cybercrime.
