CyberCop Series School Kit

 

AirDogs is based on a Massachusetts case in which teenage boys were drawn into a software piracy and cyber theft ring. In the AirDogs game, players meet Luke, a teenage snowboarding enthusiast who badly needs money to go on a snowboarding tour. His coach, Terry, has hacked into an online auction site and stolen credit card information, which he has used to purchase hundreds of laptop computers. Luke agrees to sell the laptops to his friends for a share of the profits. When Luke is taken into police custody for questioning, he is forced to make a difficult decision: will he tell the police that Terry is behind the cyber theft or will he remain loyal to his coach? Using sophisticated cyber policing tools such as “digital watermarks” and “GPS cell phone tracking,” players must locate and arrest Terry before all the blame falls on Luke.

Mirror Image is based on a real-life police case in which eight young women were lured by a predator who claimed to be a modeling agent. In the Mirror Image game, players meet two friends, Sheena and Megan. Both of the girls have created profiles about themselves which they have posted on Instant Messaging. As a result of their profiles, Sheena has been contacted by a modeling agent, Mitch, and Megan has a new online boyfriend, Mike. Everything is great until the girls begin to suspect that someone is stalking them. Using cyber policing tools such as “online directory research,” “pixel analysis,” and “IP address searches;” players are challenged to discover the connection between the girl’s online activities and the mysterious delivery van that seems to be shadowing them. By the end of the game, players discover that Mitch and Mike are the same man. He was able to stalk the girls after successfully placing a “trojan horse” on Sheena’s computer. The “trojan” compromised Sheena’s computer’s security settings and allowed the predator to electronically eavesdrop on the girl’s private conversations.
