Top three mobile application threats

The FBI needs more cash to fight the growing menace posed by paedophiles on the Internet. With 35 agents already working around the clock to investigate the sick perpetrators of online kiddie porn, the FBI is doing all it can to combat the problem. But according to Republican Bob Franks, it's not enough. And the representative from New Jersey is not just worried about the explicit material available on the Internet. Instead, he is more concerned about paedophiles who use the Net to meet children and have sex with them. He told Newsbytes that he is thinking of pushing for more funding to help the FBI combat the problem after attending a briefing on the subject yesterday. Franks also called for stricter sentencing for convicted paedophiles. Earlier this week Japan's parliament voted to outlaw kiddie porn. And a children's author and former TV director for the BBC was convicted of peddling kiddie porn on the Internet. ®
