More and more people, in spite of age and gender, are signing up for profiles on online social
networks for connecting with one another during this virtual world. Some people have many friends and
followers spread across multiple profiles. But at the same time there is proliferation of fake profiles also. Fake
profiles often spam the users like posting inappropriate or illegal content. Fake profiles are created while
misrepresenting some known person to cause harassment to him/her.This is a cross sectional study conducted
among the common people through a questionnaire with 10 questions. The sample was taken on common
people. The sample size of the study wass 100 and the results were tabulated accordingly.From the response
collected it is evident that there is no significant relationship among the public regarding cyber crime. People
who are associated with the IT sector are well aware than the general public on Cyber Crime. The Independent
variable such as age and gender was taken into consideration and the dependent variable such as awareness
about the ransomware and cyber crime was put forward to the public.The best of our knowledge, none of the
previous researchers have adopted this approach.
