Censorship Software Fail!

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 12, 2009

China’s attempts at implementing a mandatory software censorship program is an utter failure. Linux and Apple users can simply bypass the program altogether since no version exists that is compatible for their platforms. As well the software is very problematic. Popular common sites that are clean are blocked by the program. So far the manufacturer’s website has been bombarded with download request and has been getting timed out. However the lucky 3 million users have managed to download and install the software. Results are inconsistent at best. Some report being able to freely visit pornographic sites while others simply searching for animal cartoons have been blocked and deemed offensive. On top of this the site isn’t even secure. Any aspiring hacker could potentially gain access to the site, install malware, and easily compromise millions of more computers. Looks like China’s attempts at censorship is yet another utter failure.
