MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- Don't feel too bad Baby Boomers, catching on to this cyber-society we live in might not be as easy as you thought! According to a recent Norton Cyber-security Report, millennials are more likely to get ripped off online than anyone else.

Although millennials may be the most confident when it comes to the Internet, they also tend to be exposed to cyber crime more than any other age group.

The report says, 36% of millennials say they've been a victim in the past year, which might be because 31%  share passwords at a higher rate than any other generation. This includes passwords and top secret information shared through email, banking apps and even Netflix accounts!

Guess a millennial's strongest skill-set, isn't good enough when it comes to a skillful hacker.
