Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Type in "Boy Scout" in the query box of the UK web site of Ask Jeeves and up pops an ad for "hot gay sex videos".

Hit the refresh button and you get another ad promoting a hardcore gay pornography website and another and another. We clicked on the ads and some of the pictures on the front pages of the web sites were very explicit.

Ask Jeeves, a family web site which advertises its services on British television, joins a long, ignoble list of Internet portals promoting pornography to children. By mistake, granted. But bad ad targeting is no excuse.

No doubt the ads will be pulled very quickly. We have a screen grab. ®
