The illustrated fairytale has been created in the context of the Cyberethics project under the Cyberethics GII agreement. Using the characters Cyber & Ethics it has been created a series of educational fairytales targeting mainly younger children in order teach them the basics about the use of the Internet as well as its dangers. The theme of this story is to learn the importance of using antivirus programs on the computer. We found that targeting younger children (even from age of 5) is critical for them to enhance their awareness from an early age so that they have the knowledge when they become more active users.
