Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Prince Philip slammed the Net porn epidemic today, just weeks after the palace was allegedly targeted by paedophile material. The Duke of Edinburgh got on his soap box in front of business bosses in South Korea, warning of the corrupting influence of cyber-filth on future generations. He called the Internet "a fantastic development", but was concerned about its potential to reap untold damage when "exploited by the peddlers of pornography and other crooks." HRH told a UK-Korean business conference in Seoul: "Innovation and globalisation sound splendid, provided they are not being led by unscrupulous managers and clever criminals. "Information technology has produced immense benefits for humanity but only when it is used with honesty and integrity. The opportunities that technology offers to humanity are greater than ever but so are the risks.” The speech follows unconfirmed reports that Buckingham Palace was sent hard-core paedophile material by a Belgian pressure group to raise awareness of Internet pornography.
