The increasing sophistication of computer technology with its capacity to collect, analyze and disseminate information on individuals posses a great challenge to society today. The Collection of information about users has become a lucrative business. The extensive and rapid adoption of computers by business organizations and society in general has aggravated existing ethical issues and led to the emergence of new ethical issues. The purpose of this paper is to interrogate the ethical issues in a computerized society from 1980s to the 2000s. The paper looked at discussions and issues raised from 1980 to 2000.When society entered the twenty-first century, many looked to technology and it’s potential to solve human problems. The hope that technology can solve the problems of this century seems justified when one considers the powerful nature of technology in transforming life. As society develops, we must be both hopeful as well as cautious about the technologies we adopt and the ways in which we use them as they affect us in both good and bad ways. Human values are transformed in both ways, good and bad. The research revealed that computer technology poses a great challenge to human ethics and society at large. Computer technology continue to change and reform society. The ethics of today which society holds dear to is not the same ethics tomorrow as a result of computer technological changes. Ethical principles should be developed and awareness created to prevent unethical computer and internet practices.
