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."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
