School cyber safety spiel shows smut to 'Strayan students

Perils of Internet demonstrated very graphically to wide-eyed kids

ENTIRELY SFW VID A school cyber safety spiel delivered by Symantec's Norton brand at Australia's Robina High School has resulted in smut being displayed to the assembled students.

The talk was hosted by Symantec security bod Nick Savvides and featured former NFL footballer Jarryd Hayne, who used social media to good effect when making the move from the tiny sport of Rugby League to the San Francisco Forty-Niners.

Savvides told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that "During our wi-fi demo we had an open network that was available for anyone to connect to and someone had connected to the network and browsed to a site where the images were displayed.”

Such occurrences are unusual in Australia. ®
