It sounds like what you're referring to is "Attribution No Deriviatives." This allows
commercial and non-commercial that leaves the content unchanged and gives attribution.

If you used "Attribution Share Alike" others can alter your content, remix, mash-up etc.

There are myriad variations but if you don't want your content altered Share Alike is not
the way to go.

One other thing to keep in mind is that these licenses last in perpetuity unless they are
violated, then they can be revoked for that specific party.  So if you do attache a CC license
to a work it's basically attached forever. Something to think about.
