Kaspersky Lab's survey shows the most naughty kids of the year

Post προ των πυλών και τα ανυπόμονα παιδιά σε όλο τον κόσμο να ελπίζουν σε δώρα από τον Άγιο Βασίλη, ως επιβράβευση για την καλή τους συμπεριφορά, έρευνα της Kaspersky Lab δείχνει σε ποιες χώρες τα παιδιά επιδεικνύουν την πιο επικίνδυνη διαδικτυακή συμπεριφορά, στη διάρκεια των τελευταίων 12 μηνών.

Based on global statistics from the Kaspersky Lab Parental Control, the survey shows that the most attempts to visit dangerous websites by underage users were recorded in Israel (775 attempts), followed by the UK (460), the USA (352), Sweden (345) and Canada (302).

Greece was in 29 position with 92 recorded attempts.Kaspersky Lab

Η εν λόγω έρευνα καλύπτει την περίοδο από Δεκέμβριο 2015 μέχρι και Νοέμβριο και περιλαμβάνει στοιχεία που συγκεντρώθηκαν από τα ενεργοποιημένα προγράμματα ασφαλείας και Γονικού Ελέγχου της Kaspersky Lab, σε λογισμικά Windows και Mac OS X. Τα στατιστικά στοιχεία προκύπτουν βάσει του αριθμού που καταγράφει τις απόπειρες επίσκεψης ιστοσελίδων που εμπίπτουν στις επτά προεπιλεγμένες κατηγορίες* που θεωρούνται ως οι πιο επικίνδυνες για τα παιδιά από τους ειδικούς της Kaspersky Lab. Τα στατιστικά στοιχεία παρουσιάζονται ως ένας αριθμός με τις συνολικές απόπειρες ανά χρήστη και ανά έτος.

The survey results show that Japanese children are more likely to try to visit websites that fall into the category of "Mature content" (39 attempts) and "Software, audio, video" (104) – the latter category includes websites with unlicensed content. Also of interest is the fact that young Italians are more interested in luck a (3,6 attempts), while young people in Portugal visit more often websites that use vulgar language (60 attempts). Children from Israel showed more interest in websites promoting alcohol, tobacco products and/or drugs (687 attempts per user), but also weapons (3,8), while most attempts to visit websites with violent content (1,8) were done by young people in the USA. Children in Greece showed more interest in websites with content unsuitable for minors (14 attempts per user), while the other categories did not show any significant number of attempts.

However, and to be more fair, it is worth noting that all these attempts are not always intentional. For example, children can end up on these websites by accidentally clicking on a banner or link shared by another user. At the same time, another survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab in 2016 and involving 3.780 families from seven (7) different countries showed that, by mutual consent, young Russians and Americans were more likely than other children to hide from their any incriminating evidence of their dangerous online activity, as well as use content that was inappropriate for children.

"Knowledge is a force, as the well-known saying goes, and this is especially true for parents who now have an obligation to protect their children from unwanted and sometimes dangerous information, both in the real world and in the virtual world, comments Dragan Martinovic, Eastern Europe Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab.

"A mother or a father cannot always be there to prevent an accidental online encounter with, say, pornographic content or websites that promote drug use. This is the most important reason why specialized IT solutions provide an important service by warning parents and helping prevent their children from visiting websites with such content."
