Net filter: Faster to hack than download

On condition of anonymity, three IT security consultants have confirmed that it takes less time to hack the Australian Government's Net filter than it does to download it.

The politics of Net filtering are beginning to emerge. After pulling out from the ISP filtering trial, iiNet cited 'corporate social responsibility' and the government's '

Meantime, Telstra is funding an education and support program to assist children to develop their online safety skills.
