Schoolboy Cracked Government's $84 Million Internet Filter in 30 Minutes!

Sixteen-year-old schoolboy Tom Wood spent just over 30 minutes to crack the Australian government's new $84 million Internet porn filter:

A former cyber bullying victim, Tom feared a computer-savvy child could work out the bypass and put it on the Internet for others to use.

Tom, who spoke to Communications Minister Helen Coonan about cyber safety during a forum in May, said the Federal Government should have developed a better Australian made filter.

"It's a horrible waste of money," he said.

"They could get a much better filter for a few million dollars made here rather than paying overseas companies for an ineffective one.",23599,22304224-2,00.html?from=public_rss - Thanks Jeremiah!
