Hunting For Porn With A Stick

Do you ever wonder what your child is doing on his or her computer? Do you think to yourself, “is my child looking at pornography on the Internet?” There is a product from Paraben Corporation called Porn Detection Stick. It is a USB drive that contains software that scans your entire computer for pornographic images. All you do is insert the stick into one of the USB slots on your computer, double click on a file to launch the program and it goes to work hunting for porn.

The company promises no more than 1% of false positives. What happens if your son (daughter, husband, wife, fiance, etc.) deletes the naughty images? The Porn Stick people say that their device will even find deleted pictures. Is it worth the money? That is for you to decide. I can think of a few ways to possibly fool this product, like using a form of steganography, altering Windows so it does not even know a file or folder exists or renaming  file extensions. However going into detail about that is beyond the scope of this article and this blog.
