Fred Nile caught in web porn scandal

From the Sydney Morning Herald today via Fred Nile caught in web porn scandal.

OK – I’m laughing. Not so much that the squeakier clean than thou Mr Nile has become involved in this but rather from two parts of the report. Mr Nile claimed that the accessing of the porn websites was for research on the Australian Sex Party and the Eros Foundation.

A report by the Department of Parliamentary Services showed his computers had accessed porn sites up to 200,000 times.

Well, that is an awful lot of research. Nile claimed that staffers were only on each website for a few seconds and the IT department at the State Government also noted that many were pop-ups. Doesn’t the IT department block pop-ups as a standard implementation of the browser on the network? Oh well.

The best bit though was when it was noted that

One staff member, a part-time researcher, uses Mr Nile’s personal login name and password.

Well hello, is that not a breach of security on the NSW State Government networks? It is on most commerical operations and anyway, who is so stupid as to give their access details to another at the office that way? Obviously Mr Nile is … although I am sure if he asked the IT guys nicely, they would have provided a logon for his staff member … unles he wanted to keep that secret of course?  😉
