Honolulu ranks No. 11 in riskiest online cities

Associated Press

HONOLULU Honolulu nearly made the Norton Top 10 Riskiest Online Cities list. It was No. 11.

The report released Monday by security software maker Symantec Corp. says Seattle residents are at greatest risk to cybercrime.
The company says rankings were determined through a combination of data on cyberattacks and potential malware infections. Also included was third-party information about online behavior, such as accessing wifi hotspots and online shopping.
It says Seattle placed near the top in such categories as cyberattacks and potential infections and online behavior that can expose people more to cybercrime.
Seattle was followed by Boston, Washington, San Francisco, Raleigh, N.C., Atlanta, Minneapolis, Denver, Austin, Texas, Portland, Ore., and Honolulu.
