Porn-loving federal worker infected government network with malware

An administration representative’s inclination for watching pornography on his work PC contaminated the whole organization with malware and left it powerless against data taking infections, an examination has found.

The unidentified horny staff member had an “broad history” of watching pornography and visited in excess of 9,000 X-evaluated site pages on his official PC, as per a report by the US Department of Interior’s Office of Inspector General.

He is positioned at the US Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science Center satellite imaging office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

OIG dispatched an examination after “dubious web traffic” was found during an IT security review, the Oct. 17 report said.

The obscene locales the government worker frequented “started in Russia and contained malware.”

“Our investigation affirmed that a significant number of the explicit pictures were consequently spared to an unapproved USB gadget and individual Android PDA associated with [redacted] Government-gave PC,” the report said.

The Android was likewise contaminated with malware.

The test found that USGS’s site access and open USB ports were especially powerless against network protection assaults.

OIG suggested that USGS hamburger up its organization security and “consistently screen representative web use history.” The report didn’t detail whether the laborer was punished for his pornography propensity.
