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."

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
