      What is the likelihood of this type of attack though? How might this be acheived on a small scale, according to what the sec expert in the video says?

    I think the main dangers are online predators. This includes the ones who not only try meet up with young children, but also those who try to steal your identity.

      Why are computer viruses a big part of this problem? Especially identity theft?

      Yes, Cam it is. Point well made. Now change your username to your own identity or expect consequences…

    I think keylogging would be another main issue on the internet, especially when accessing online banking!

    the danger is not so much about the viruses itself, but more about the theft of the information, and where it goes
