dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power
United Nations Convention against Corruption

Corruption is a system that starts out good but somehow goes wrong. It could be an entire government doing what they say is good, but instead oppress people, or a computer file or computer program which either gets technical malfunctions or gets infected with a computer virus. Corruption is very harmful for a society and country.

Sometimes the term just means bribery.
