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.
