Spanish police trainees cop an eyeful of smut

Introductory video with a difference

SANS - Survey on application security programs

A training course for aspiring Spanish police sergeants got off to a lively start when, instead of the intended introductory video, the 120 participants were treated to "explicit sex between two blond adults", as El País puts it.

The eager students settled into their seats at the Local Police Academy in Madrid and "the auditorium fell dark and silent". The projection screen descended and the show kicked off with a short burst of official police crests heralding an quick cut to XXX blond-on-blonde* action.

Amid laughter from the audience, the techie in charge of the projection tried desperately to kill the output of the PC responsible for the outrage, but in the process provoked a series of hard-core pop-ups, once of which was entitled "Mum, son and family". Within a minute, he'd managed to restore order.

Naturally, the powers that be have launched an investigation into how the auditorium's computer came to spew forth filth. Since the offending PC is not ascribed to any single user, leads are scarce, but official sources confirmed that "some pornographic images" were downloaded from the internet onto the machine by someone in the centre. The probe continues. ®

Bootnote

*Well, we assume it was blond-on-blonde, but El País is a bit vague. In the traditional Vulture Central spirit of open-mindedness, readers are invited to cut and paste "blond-on-blond" or "blonde-on-blonde" into the text, according to personal taste.

Oh yes - thanks to Chris Winpenny for the tip-off.
