Hacked business domains used to host child abuse images

Steve Ragan | Aug. 12, 2013
Internet watchdog group says legitimate business web sites are unwittingly being used as a conduit to relay child porn images

"The disadvantage is that you will still be traceable via your contract with the ISP supplying you with webspace and your whois data. But if you can find someone else's poorly secured webserver, you can pull off the same trick."

According to the IWF, there were more than 9,477 websites hosting abuse images on the Web in 2012, but those figures are known, only because they were reported.

"What is concerning for us is that not enough people know how to report this or would rather ignore it...," said IWF CEO, Susie Hargreaves.
