How big is digital fraud in the UK?
Sources say that reports of fraud have increased massively. This was released by the office for national statistics (ONS) who are adding cyber crimes to their figures.
The ONS reckons in the crime figures that were announced last week, that over 2 million computer misuse offences and 3.8 million online fraud offences have taken place in 12 months to the end of march.
In total 68 percent of the computer misuse offences involved malware, leaving 32 percent involving hacking or illegal access. The figures have been much greater than the ONS initially estimated last year.
