An attempt of the socio-cultural analysis of the problem of cyber-terrorism in the social networks has been done. The authors argue that, despite a number of positive features of communication that in contemporary Russian society operate social networks around the world, they are increasingly becoming a source of massive attacks of cyberterrorism, perpetrated with the aim at harming human life and society. It is argued that cyber-terrorism, initially hiding under the guise of social and active user on the network, eventually leaving the virtual space becomes a real manifestation of terrorism.
Key words: safety, information safety, cyber terrorism, social network, Russian society.

It is presented a philosophical and anthropological analysis of the basic foundations of human fear in modern culture. The underlying foundation of the fear of man is ambivalent: fear, on the one hand, protects a person from danger and contributes to the playful person, but, on the other hand, fear limits human comprehension of being, constrains its activity. Fear either mobilizes or slows down human behavior: fear can manifest asthenic reaction (numbness and tremors, utter confusion), sthenic reaction (panic), or sthenic excitement. Fear of death causes a person to avoid situations that pose a threat to his life. Fear arises from a person in connection with the objectification of anxiety under the influence of imaginary or real dangers. It is experienced holistically by the person on various levels: physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioral. The causes of fear can also be classified into several groups, among which mention should be made of natural, individual and socio-cultural. Fear is inherent in all higher mammals and perform the necessary biological function associated with the response to the situation that causes the danger. Irrational fear is man`s fear of himself, in front of hidden in the unconscious destructive impulses. Fear appears as one of the mechanisms for the formation of social character – imparting qualities of the person considered necessary in this society, and the limitations of those behavioural manifestations that are considered undesirable.
