US army filters porn

Stand to attention

The US army is making harder for soldiers to access porn and gambling sites, by installing Websense filtering software at more than 100 bases worldwide.

Each base will get choose what types of site are blocked from the personnel, Sunday Business reports.

The US army is not particularly fussed by soldiers looking at pornography (just as well, really), and it does not know how many soldiers access porn, spokeswoman Karen Baker told armytimes.com. "We don't maintain any data on this type of activitiy, but we employ human beings."

The US army deal is worth $1.8m to Websense. ®
