NEW YORK – August 2, 2012 – In the wake of major consumer website hackings, three of five U.S. adults who are online say they feel that they might be vulnerable to being hacked for their online accounts.

And since 62 percent of online adults reuse the same password for more than one of their online accounts, one hacking is likely to compromise all of their data online.
