Swedish bankers punt webcam smut to kiddies

'Very unfortunate' magazine link to hard-core strumpetry

Security for virtualized datacentres

A Swedish bank has apologised for punting porn to wide-eyed schoolkids in a magazine sent out to over half a million 9 to 12-year-olds.

Swedbank's Lyckoslanten ("Lucky Penny") is described as a “fun magazine about money", but an article in the latest issue listing the top ten most expensive domain names offered extra fun when it ranked the $1m webcam.com at number five.

Swedbank spokeswoman Anna Sundblad described the gaffe as "very unfortunate" - a fair description given that webcam.com is heavy on live hard-core strumpetry and light on sound financial advice.

She added: “To all of the upset parents, we can only say we are really sorry about what happened.”

To make amends, Swedbank has now published "information about how parents can block their computers from accessing pornographic websites", The Local notes. ®
