According to Norton, the results of this survey showed an increase in new forms of cyber crime than in previous years, such as the discovery of the social networks or mobile devices.
That is, it indicates that the cyber crime start focusing on the target device or popular service.
One in five adults who do online activities (21 percent) have been a victim of cyber crime from the victim on social networks to be a victim in mobile devices. While 39 percent of social networking users have been victims of social crime in cyberspace. Here's the breakdown:
# 15 percent of social networking users report that the profile has been hacked and someone pretending to be the owner of the profile.
# One in 10 social network users say they have been victims of a scam and deceptive links on social networking.
# While 75 percent believe that cybercrime set their sights on social networks, less than half (44 percent) actually use security solutions that protect them from the threat of social networks, and only 49 percent use privacy settings to control what information they disclose, they provide , and with whom they share.
# Almost one-third (31 percent) of mobile device users receive a text message from someone they do not know and ask them to click a link that has been connected or make outgoing calls to numbers that are not known to take a voice message.
"Crime cyberspace alter their tactics by targeting the growth of mobile devices and social networks where consumers are less concerned with security risks," said Marian Merritt, Norton Internet Safety Advocate.
