Security for virtualized datacentres

There are red faces at the BBC today after it wrongly credited pictures on its Web site to a porn site instead of a picture agency.

The blunder happened on a page aimed at teenagers which quoted some sloppy celebs getting in the mood for Valentine's Day.

The pictures of Mr and Mrs Ozzy Osbourne, Madonna and Guy Ritchie et al were accompanied with the words: "All of the above pictures are from www.bigpictures.com."

Snag is, bigpictures.com is a porn site which contains, ahem, galleries of "gorgeous women of all shapes and sizes...medium to plump, and large to extra large".

Bigpicturesphoto.com, on the other hand, is a picture agency dealing in piccies of the rich and famous.

Within minutes of being notified the Beeb changed the credit. ®
