Child Porn: Malware's ultimate evil

November 9, 2009, 01:24 PM —

If you lose files, you can probably restore them. If your credit gets stolen, you can eventually restore it. But, if malware starts storing child pornography on your PC, you're done. In a world where anything goes-as Paris Hilton's 'career' and SC governor Mark Sanford continuing in office after his 'hike' on the Appalachian trail shows--there are still some things you cannot do and survive in society. Near the top of that list is child pornography. Now, thanks to some particularly nasty Windows malware, your computer might be being used to store it and you may never know it until it's too late.

A recent AP report revealed that pedophiles are using "virus-infected PCs to remotely store and view their stash without fear they'll get caught." It's not just sick people though. "Pranksters or someone trying to frame you can tap viruses to make it appear that you surf illegal Web sites. Whatever the motivation, you get child porn on your computer - and might not realize it until police knock at your door."

The AP "found cases in which innocent people have been branded as pedophiles after their co-workers or loved ones stumbled upon child porn placed on a PC through a virus. It can cost victims hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove their innocence."

Let's say though that you prove your innocence. Once tarred with the brush of being a pedophile there are many people who will never believe that you're not guilty. And, even if they do eventually believe you, in the meantime you can lose your spouse and your children, your job, your friends, and everything that makes life worth living.

As I said at the start, all the usual horrible things that malware can do to you are nothing compared to what can happen to you if your PC is taken over to search for kiddie porn or to store it.
So what can you do to prevent this? The usual: keep your Windows PC current with patches; use a good anti-virus program and keep it up to date; and never, ever click on links in a dodgy e-mail message. Better still, from a security standpoint, you can switch from Windows to a Mac or a Linux PC.

In addition, since it appears that the most common way that child abusers use infected PCs is to use them to store their pornographic files, you should use a good firewall. You should then set it to block such P2P (peer-to-peer) file sharing network programs such as BitTorrent, Gnutella/LimeWire, and eMule.

These program backers don't in any way, shape, or form support kiddie porn, but their protocols can be used to carry any content. When you want to use P2P programs for your own purposes, you can simply open your firewall to these programs as needed. Windows' own built-in firewall is adequate to block these file-sharing protocols.

None of this can absolutely guarantee that your PC won't be taken over, but by maintaining constant vigilance you should be able to keep both your PC, and your life, safe from this most malicious of all malware attacks.





That is just heinous talk about a new low.

The legal system that allows those consequences to happen is even more fucked up.

Wow,... sad. I'm not an internet expert, but wouldn't all you would need to do is hire some kind of a tech guru to prove your case? Anyways, I feel for the children that have to miss out on their childhood due to sick people.

If that was the case, then anyone with child porn could just install a virus and claim that someone else did it.

They could even install a packet sniffer, then sniff some packets of themselves using the virus to download child porn from a wireless connection.  Then if they get caught, they have solid evidence that a hacker did it.

We can not allow this loop hole to exist!  For the childrens sake, anyone caught with child porn on their computer must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law! 



You can use computers in a similar way to get you off in court on serious felony charges.  When you need to get away with a murder or bank robbery, drive out into the mountains until your cell phone says no signal.  Then turn it off, turn around and go back into town and commit your crimes.  A couple days later drive back to that place where there was no signal, turn on your cell phone and come back into town.  If you are accused of anything, your cell phone records will prove that you were camping in the mountains at the time the alleged crimes occurred.

How is the child being harmed after the fact?  The person taking the pictures is the one harming the child.  Giving someone prison time cause he jerked off looking at something fucked up is retarted, by those rules half of Japan should be in prison.

yeah i mean... if you're jacking off to child porn or taking nude photos of children, you deserve castration and prison time. end of story.

but if someone put photos on your computer it wouldn't make any sort of sense to punish you.

I really don't understand who the victim is when someone is whacking off to child porn.  I find it disturbing, but I don't see who is being hurt by it.  I don't want that type of behavior repeated, but blaming people for what crimes that they might commit is a slippery slope, with that logic places like this would get shut down and users arrested.  Its 1st amendment shit, you gotta take the good with the bad.  Having sex with children, taking naked pictures of children ruin children, the market shouldn't exist, but who's being hurt when some pervert jerks off to child porn that's been around for 20 years?  Or for 20 days for that matter.

What immediately comes to mind is this technology being used to frame political rivals in an atmosphere of vindictive, moral paranoia.

Turning someone into a criminal not for what he does, but for what other people may do is wrong.  Child pornography isn't what makes people molest children, people having poor control is what makes people molest children.  Also the fact that someone can have sex with a 16 year old, but will get prison time for looking at pictures of the same person is retarded.

Who the fuck posts on the shroomery except drug users, doesn't mean jack shit.  Freedom of speech is important, just because you find something disturbing doesn't mean it should be illegal.  I could give 2 shits less whether or not you believe me, it doesn't matter.  The point I'm making is the act of viewing an image shouldn't be a crime, its fucking retarded.

but maybe you misunderstood me. these images come from somewhere... they're pictures of abused children. as long as there is a demand for these pictures, more children will be abused than if this demand did not exist. therefore, all opinions aside, children are getting their lives fucked over (pun intended) just because some sick fuck wants to jack off to them and is willing to pay.

if there was no demand for it, child porn would not be an issues... as it would not exist. but since there is a demand, kids are getting abused, photographed, exploited. it's very fucked up. the molesters/picture takers and jackoffers deserve the same thing, capital castration, humiliation, and a small steel box to live in for the rest of their lives.

I don't buy that most of child pornography is sold, I think more of it is traded.  I do agree that child porn should be illegal to be sold, but thats not the issue I'm talking about.  Treating people that view child pornography the same as child molesters is still insane.

I don't really agree with that.

The only person I know that has been into child porn is one of my ex girlfriends.  She was good looking, blonde, and into all sorts of kinky stuff.  She traded child porn on kazaa, she said she liked it because turned her on.  I think it would have been a waste of taxpayer dollars to send her to prison for that.  She wasn't into abusing children, she was into pretty much everything that is against the rules. 

I advised her to encrypt the child porn, never upload it to kazaa, and only download it from starbucks type internet connections.  I doubt she took any of my advice though.  She didn't really consider it much of a big deal.

Sending people to prison for making child porn is ok, but just for having it is silly.

One of my friend's girlfriends liked it, too.

I believe the age of conscience is when you know right from wrong and, for this reason, have thought better of having sex with a few grown women.
