Yet another cybercrime problem is apparently getting worse.  The latest Internet Security Threat Report from Norton by Symantec says it's digital extortion.  

Kevin Haley, Symantec's Director of Security, Technology and Response, says crooks using ransomware are a big problem so far this year.

The other big one this year has to do with people who try to get you to fool your friends on social media, then distribute malware and scams.  Haley says these crimes have more than doubled in the past year.
