Given the lack of ability to inspect merchandise before purchase,
consumers are at hight risk of fruad than face-to-face transaction.
Merchants also risk fruadulent purchases using stolen credit cards or
fruadulent repudiation of the online purchase. However, merchants face
less risk from physical thief using a warehouse insted of a retail
storefront. Secure sockets (SSL) encryption has generally solved
probelms of credit card numbers being interexcepted in the transit
between consumer and the merchant. However, one must still trust the
merchant (and employees) not to use the cred card information
subsequently for their own purchase, and not to pass the information  to
others. Also hackers might break into a merchant's web site and steal
names, addresses and credit card numbers although the payment card
industry Data Security standered is intended to minimizee the impact of
search breaches. Idenitity thief is still a concern to consumers. a
number of high- profile breack-ins in the 2000s has prompted some U.S.
states to require disclosure to cosumers when this happens. Computer
security thus become a major cvoncern for merchants and e- commerce
providers, who deploy countermeasures such as firewall and anti-virus
software to protect their works.
