Online shoppers are being issued with more warnings about an increase in cybercrime activity in the run-up to Christmas. Security firm McAfee has gone so far as to say that it could result in a perfect storm of cybercrime as more of us make digital purchases without taking adequate fraud prevention measures.

With 50% of us increasing the amount of shopping we do online generally there’s also concern that not enough of us are changing our habits to reduce the risk of being a victim of cybercrime.
