Porn gets posted everywhere even Sesame St. is not safe. 10172011

It is often said that the internet is not safe, but you must maintain your vigilance and keep track of what your kids are doing too. Even Sesame Street has been targeted by an individual or group and they were hacked.  The YouTube channel owned by Sesame Street was compromised and turned into a “Red Light District”.

It is a shame when the criminal or mischievous individual has to hurt innocent minds. We may be able to sit back and laugh if they were swapping videos for something silly like “Puppies play football” or “A father getting showered during a diaper change”. But instead the postings were hardcore Porn.  I am not sure what gain these people have by destroying a children’s playground other than to help build complete mistrust at an early age. It is unfortunate that they would victimized children on such a large scale for what appears to be no real gain other than I could climb the mountain.

Most of us in the industry know that the better the security system the faster people will try to topple it, so ultimately revamping the way we secure information will probably gradually get weaker. So there may be one lesson to be learned, data  that is maintained on a connected network is always at risk.
