Why You Don't Surf For Porn If You Work For The Government.

from the defies-reason dept

Data leaks are bad. Data leaks by government agencies are slightly more irritating. But how about a data leak at a government agency, thanks to a state employee getting a computer infected with a trojan by surfing porn? In another triumph for reactive security, the trojan sat on the computer undetected for four months, and only came to light after the employee got caught surfing porn at work and was fired. Oregon officials say its "anti-malware filters" didn't pick up the trojan because it was so new, the security software didn't recognize it. Uh, okay, but the real cause of this problem is the bonehead employee looking at porn on a state-owned computer. Though the person got fired, will there be any repercussions for either them personally, or the state? That's pretty doubtful. Until that changes, don't expect to see these data leaks subside

lol I know I shouldnt laugh..  but really!!

Any sane person would know that warez and pr0n sites are the most likely places to pickup malware.

Im also laughin at the thought of some guy surfing pr0n sites during his tea break.  Quickie anyone?

Was that "Vista Vista" or viva viva I heard you shouting. [-X

Most of the gov (sh sh) sites I have worked in in this country all have keyloggers, this I discovered one day after being told off for sending too many personal messages to other collegues. :shock:
