University of Kent’s Cyber Research Survey Shows How Big the Online Generation Gap Is..Or Isn’t

The University of Kent’s Cyber Security Center has released a study that shows the 5% of adults have browsed the dark net. It also shows that 1% said they have actually bought something on dark net. An even higher percentage of 14% of 18-24-year old’s said they have used dark net to buy things.

Kent’s survey revealed that 4% of British adults were at one point, victims of ransomware. This is a special kind of malware which encrypted the victim’s computer, only to be unlocked for a hefty fee. 26% of those who took the survey said they paid the ransom to have their computers restored back to normal. A staggering 35% say even after paying the ransom, their systems were never recovered.
