Porn found on Brunel web­site

Hard­core im­ages found on page link

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

BRUNEL Univer­sity bosses were left red faced af­ter a link to Ja­panese porn was un­cov­ered on their web­site.

The Uxbridge-based univer­sity of­fers a ‘Ja­panese Re­sources’ page on its web­site for stu­dents in­ter­ested in tak­ing a lan­guage course and learn­ing more about the coun­try’s cul­ture.

This sec­tion con­tains links to other web­pages, in­clud­ing lan­guage guides, anime and manga cul­ture.

But one re­searcher had a nasty sur­prise af­ter find­ing the link ‘Ja­pan UK 150’, un­der the sub­ti­tle ‘Ja­panese Cul­ture’, opened a new tab full of hard­core pornog­ra­phy.

A Brunel spokesper­son said: “We are grate­ful that this in­ap­pro­pri­ate link was pointed out to us and we deleted it im­me­di­ately.

“We ex­pend con­sid­er­able time and ef­fort polic­ing our 44,000 web pages which con­tain in ex­cess of 100,000 links.

“U n fo r t u n a t e l y, oc­ca­sion­ally, what were pre­vi­ously in­no­cent and use­ful links can change hands, which is what we be­lieve hap­pened here.”
