Almost half of internet users in the UK have suffered "harm" online, suggests research.
The harms include bullying and harassment as well as attacks by malware or cyber-thieves.
The study by regulator Ofcom sought to quantify the type and severity of harm that going online could do to people.
Interactions via social networks and email were deemed to be the most likely to cause harm.
