Data diddling occurs when someone with access to information of some sort changes this information before it is entered into a computer. This is done to provide some sort of benefit to the data diddler, generally financial, and is a common method of computer-related crime. Data diddling can occur at various points along the chain of information entry, and it is often very subtle and virtually undetectable. It can be something as small as a time clerk substituting his own name or employee number for another employee's name or number.

Colonel Bajwa, a resident of New Delhi, asked a nearby net café owner to come and set up his Internet connection. For this purpose, the net café owner needed to know his username and password. After having set up the connection he went away with knowing the present username and password. He then sold this information to another net café. One week later Colonel Bajwa found that his Internet hours were almost over. Out of the 100 hours that he had bought, 94 hours had been used up within the span of that week. Surprised, he reported the incident to the Delhi police. The police could not believe that time could be stolen. They were not aware of the concept of time-theft at all. Colonel Bajwa's report was rejected. He decided to approach The Times of India, New Delhi. They, in turn carried a report about the inadequacy of the New Delhi Police in handling cyber crimes. The Commissioner of Police, Delhi then took the case into his own hands and the police under his directions raided and arrested the net café owner under the charge of theft as defined by the Indian Penal Code. The net café owner spent several weeks locked up in Tihar jail before being granted bail. Read More
