Introduction
Information technology has revolutionized every aspect of life. Information has dramatically changed the areas of entertainment, business, medicine and employment. Information is having a positive and negative impact on our daily lives. Ethics in computer science revolves around computing professionals and their decisions in the professional and social spheres in the
oadest sense. Computer and information ethics investigate the ethical and social impact of ICT. The ethical decisions people make are centered on the individual's personal code, the code of conduct in the workplace context, and, in particular, the exposure of ethical standards. Therefore, computer ethics constitutes a
anch of practical philosophy that explains the way computer professionals need to make decisions about their careers and social behavior. Information and communication technology (ICT) has changed the relationships, family and community life, career and education, freedom and democracy. Questions about ethics relate to concepts for example evil or good, wrong or right, and virtues or bad habits. Ethical or moral philosophy studies the concept of good and evil behavior. Philosophers classify moral issues into three main areas. In nowadays advanced technology era, the ethical dilemmas have become a main concern for the business associations. Moral predicaments are a serious situation in which people prefer ethical behavior or unethical behavior.

During the stealing of the secret encryption key, the hacker places the magnetic probe near the company system at the time the phone performs the encryption operation. In this way, stealing secret encryption keys from a company's computer system is a major ethical issue associated with ICT. Data hacking is a major ethical issue related to ICT. Various processes, such as DET, play an important role in investigating ethical issues in specific situations (Arnold, Beauchamp & Bowie, 2013). Based on selected workplace ethical dilemmas, hackers were observed to use channel attacks to help steal data or information in appropriate manner. For example, with the help of channel attacks, hackers can detect memory usage patterns generated throughout the decryption procedure. In addition, they also investigate electromagnetic output of the gadget or device to retrieve the secret encryption key from the system. In these methods, data hacking have become a main ethical problem on the company's platform. Moral dilemmas are dangerous for the success and development of business organizations. At the same time, business...
