Cyber Security

Guess I’ll be turning down that killer IT job at the Defense Department.

The Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency warned its employees and contractors last week to stop using their government computers to surf the Internet for pornographic sites, according to the agency’s executive director.


In a one-page memo, Executive Director John James Jr. wrote that in recent months government employees and contractors were detected “engaging in inappropriate use of the MDA network.”


“These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code,” he wrote.“Specifically, there have been instances of employees and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images,” James wrote in the July 27 memo obtained by Bloomberg News.


In the world of Big Brother concepts like CyberSpying on individuals and such, hasn’t the government learned to secure their own computer networks from porn sites?

Hell, even my workplace has installed security measures to keep employees from visiting sites such as ebay and craigslist, not to mention actual porn sites, not that I have the inclination to visit any.

Now that I think on it, has the Obama administration reassigned some of their recently disgraced Secret Service Agents to the DOD? Inquiring minds want to know!
