Study Says 1 in 3 Brits are Victims of Cybertheft

According to a recent study of 1,400 men and women in the UK 1 in 3 have been victims of cybertheft. The study claims that despite awareness of cybertheft more people expect to be a victim of online theft or fraud than expect to be a victim of a physical assault or robbery in the street.

The study was commissioned by AVG, the internet security firm between October 11th and 17th of 2007. Some of the facts uncovered by the study include the following.

Men believe they have cybertheft protection, but are unsure what their computer has. One in five says they get fraudulent emails and 1 in 3 says they have been victim. Only 18% of those affected by cybercrime have changed their usage habits to prevent the act from happening again.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
