Kaspersky reveals minor porn problem

Millions of attempts by minors to access porn Web sites every day

Antivirus provider Kaspersky Lab has released data showing that there are more than 4 million attempts by minors to access pornographic Web sites each day.

The data, which was collected via Kaspersky’s security technology network, indicates that more than 160,000 computers with the vendor's "parental control" software installed attempted to access pornographic content every hour.

According to Kaspersky Lab, the peak time for attempts to enter porn sites is 11pm.

"I think that people are making the first positive step in using their security controls, but the next step is to take this data and limit what their children are attempting to access", Nigel Hedges, technical services manager at Kaspersky, told PC World. "It’s not enough just to turn these features on, they now need to take the next step and take personal control."

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
