Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A priest has gone on trial in the US charged with trafficking child pornography on the Internet. Reverend Robert Orr denies that he downloaded pictures of naked young boys and distributed them to other online paedophiles. Claiming to be a computer novice and a Net virgin, the Rev said he stumbled upon the images by mistake when playing around with the church's PC. The prosecution claims that the Rev -- who allegedly had suggestive screen names including "Lapboy", "Lapteen" and "XESYOB" (Boysex spelled backwards) -- is not as naive as he makes out. In an ecclesiastical twist, the indifferent Reverend says he knows the true identity of the real smutmeister but is bound by the secrecy of the confessional not to reveal his name. Unfortunately for parishioner John Ralston, the Rev's attorney is not bound by such religious rules as he named and shamed the astonished man much to the astonishment of the court in Philadelphia. Ralston has not been charged worth any crime, according to the report by Philadelphia Newspapers. The case continues. ®
