Spanish police said files retrieved contained abusive and brutal treatment of children up to 8 years of age.(This story has not been edited by Business Standard staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.) Spanish officials say police have arrested 39 people in an international operation against a major network that distributed child pornography material via the popular online chat application Whats App.Spanish police said files retrieved contained abusive and brutal treatment of children up to 8 years of age.We will immediately remove profiles that are found to be spreading inappropriate content or engage in spam/phishing as soon as they come to our attention,” the statement read.“Linked In always recommends that members only connect with people they know and trust and, as a further layer of protection, we recommend that members install and keep up-to-date well-regarded antivirus/ antimalware software on their computers.” The statement went on to say that Linked In’s Safety Center links to such security products from other companies that members can use free for the first 90 days.Spanish police said their suspicions were aroused when investigators found a link in a computer network known as The Onion Router, or TOR, that hides the identities of users.
The network operated some 100 chat groups with 135 identified users in Europe, Central America and South America, a statement issued by police in Spain said.When approached for comment, Linked In Corporate Communications Manager, Richard George provided a statement to Customer Experience Report.“Linked In takes the privacy and security of its members extremely seriously.But the way to approach this would be the same as talking about sex: without judgement.However embarrassing the situation, you should answer every question and don’t feel ashamed about their curiosity.
