When we study the emotions of the victims of certain cyber-attacks, a large majority of them display behaviors of discomfort and stress. These people feel personally involved in the impact of the cyber-attack. Many feelings, impressions and emotions trigger attitudes, behaviors that move from guilt to seeking comfort, help, support, etc. Depending on the cyber-attack, many more or less common emotions seem to be emerging. But also new attitudes in order to seek answers, comfort or justification for an act, word, comment, position, criticism or even insults issued or received. We can rely on the scientific theories I have developed concerning my research on Behavioral Differentiations between the Real and the Virtual Space, which are the subject of several scientific publications [1-14] in order to understand some of these new behaviors.

“Avatarization”, “Transversal Zone” and “Virtual Intelligence” are revealed all the more in the face of these new behaviors that the virtual puts forward... My theories, which can also be found in my books on Net-profiling [15], highlight other behaviors that social networks are increasingly highlighting. Humans adapt and or modify themselves by or through the virtual.
