A New York Times notice with its kiddie porn report today, printed in hardcopy but not online:
An investigation by the New York Times last year disclosed a new frontier in child pornography, in which minors used computer video Webcams to perform on the Internet in exchange for gifts and money. That article, published in December, resulted in a government crackdown, including arrests and the shutdown of major Webcam pornography sites.
The Times' investigation opened a window into an online subculture of pedophiles. This two-part series is a further look into that world and the businesses that have developed to serve it.
Covering this story raised legal issues. United States law makes it a crime to buy, download or view child pornography, unless the images are promptly reported to the authorities and no images are copied or retained. The Times complied with the law, disclosing what it found to appropriate authorities.
Cryptome scoured and PGP-wiped its computer to eliminate storage, cache and pointers of viewed material. The file sent to the FBI was zapped. Hopefully there is nothing incriminating lurking in hidden entrapments set-up by viruses and trojans by patriotic Microsoft, IBM, or the visited sites -- any of which could be LE stings or honeypots arranged by the Times ratting on targets and the authorities spoon-feeding the primly drooling Times.
To be sure, the FBI might have to confiscate our equipment to verify lawful compliance, as done with ex-MI6 Richard Tomlinson, and then install watching, logging and reporting programs in the returned goods. More on these LE trojans at http://jya.com/DIRT-spy.htm
