Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Japanese pornographers became embedded deep within a Home Office site advising on the interception of possible terrorist communications.

The Home Offices has apparently now removed a link from its Office for Security and Counter Terrorism site, after workers occupying the postal and telecommunications industries got more than they'd bargained for when trying to find out how to fight government warrants on the handing over of confidential communications between members of the public.

The URL was hidden in a link that told companies if they felt a notice on setting up surveillance from the Home Office was unreasonable, they could refer to the Technical Advisory Board (TAB).

According to the now updated Home Office link, the TAB consists of a panel of "experts from government and the communications services industry" whose role is to "advise the Home Secretary on whether disputed notices are reasonable."

The TAB does not, as the original link suggested, consist of a bunch of large-breasted Japanese girls sporting glossy lipstick and hardly any underwear, pouting for the photographer.

The Home Office told the BBC it would be investigating how the link made it into the site, but noted the site it was linking to had become defunct and been bought by a "different company".

Thanks to one sharp-eyed Reg reader for pointing out the existence of this Japanese-porn-Home-Office-penetration op. ®
