The arrests follow other efforts to prevent users posting “false rumours” on Chinese micro-blogs

More than 10,000 suspects have been arrested and 600 criminal gangs “busted” in China’s latest cybercrime crackdown, the authorities say.

As of June, 3.2 million “harmful” messages had been deleted and 30 internet service providers punished for granting access to unlicensed sites, the Ministry of Public Security said.

The crackdown targeted pornography and the illegal sale of personal details.

But some say it is being used to censor online criticism of the government.

“Although illegal and harmful information on the internet has been sharply reduced through intensified crackdowns, fraudulent messages are still seen occasionally,” said a statement from the ministry quoted by the official Xinhua news agency. Read the rest of this entry »

Dirty Money: Is Canada’s New $20 Bill ‘Pornographic’?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 14, 2012

As a bonus, the controversial currency also evokes the Twin Towers.

What do you get when you put topless women and an image that looks like the Twin Towers on a Canadian $20 dollar bill? A lot of controversy.

The newly redesigned $20 bill was unveiled by the Bank of Canada in Ottawa last week, according to the Daily Mail. The revamped bill — the most counterfeited Canadian tender in circulation — is manufactured from a high-tech polymer and boasts a difficult-to-copy design that’s supposed to make it much more difficult to produce.

If only someone had taken a closer look at what the new design actually was. While it features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II  (Canada is a commonwealth country, don’t forget), it also carries a reproduction of the National Vimy Memorial. There are a couple problems here: for one thing, the Vimy Memorial, created to honor Canadian servicemembers who lost their lives during World War I, is not the most recognizable of  national symbols. “I’ve never seen this monument, ever,” said one Vancouver participant in a Bank of Canada focus group on the bill.

‘Anonymous’ Forces 40+ Child Pornography Sites Offline

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 29, 2012

Anonymous has turned its attentions from corporations to pedophiles with the news that the hacktivist group has taken down multiple child pornography sites, including one of the largest known, with account details of its 1589 users being posted online as evidence.

The incident was just part of something Anonymous is calling “Operation Darknet,” a move by the group to eliminate child pornography on the Tor network. Tor, which was originally developed as a way of protecting government communications by the U.S. Navy, now describes itself as “a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet.” But the privacy and anonymity it offers has been abused by child pornographers, something that Anonymous aims to correct with its new campaign.

(MORE: Anonymous – People Who Mattered in 2011)

In its statement about the takedown, Anonymous says that the group “identified [hosting service] Freedom Hosting as the host of the largest collection of child pornography on the internet,” adding “By taking down Freedom Hosting, we are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography. We will continue to not only crash Freedom Hosting’s server, but any other server we find to contain, promote, or support child pornography.” Read the rest of this entry »

Does Porn Watching Lead to Divorce?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 30, 2011


As America did not bring Osama’s porn loving proof in time, many could have doubt. Why America could not bring everything in time and did part by part with long time interval? This is globally sensitive case and America’s activities seemed to be immatured in this case.
