Amid outrage over mob lynchings in India, WhatsApp finally responds to Modi govt's letter 4.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
India told Facebook-owned WhatsApp to take "immediate action" after a spate of horrific lynchings sparked by false rumours being shared on the hugely popular smartphone messaging service. More than 25 people have been killed in India in recent months after rumours were spread on smartphones about child kidnappers, thieves and sexual predators. Reacting to this news, WhatsApp responded to the Government of India’s letter on rumours spread via the app and said, “Like the Government of India, we’re horrified by these terrible acts of violence and wanted to respond quickly to the very important issues you have raised. We believe this is a challenge that requires government, civil society, and technology companies to work together.” A stern statement issued by the electronics and IT ministry late on Tuesday expressed the government's "deep disapproval" to the senior management of WhatsApp over the "irresponsible and explosive messages". "The government has also conveyed in no uncertain terms that WhatsApp ...

4 arrested for Bihar molestation horror, police hunts others 1.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Police caught four persons, including a minor on Monday, a day after a video went viral showing a teen crying and pleading for mercy as six molesters laugh and rip her clothes off and nobody helps in Bihar's Jehanabad. Senior police officer Naiyyar Hasnain Khan said in Patna, "They have been arrested for assaulting and stripping the girl. The other two were shooting the incident." Khan had formed a special team to investigate the case after police received a video clip late on April 28. Those arrested include locals Amar Kumar, Deepak Kumar and Sunil Kumar, all 18, and a 14 year-old. "There were four-five other boys involved and will be rounded up soon," Khan said.

This new tool can spot potential child rapists in online chatrooms 24.4.2018 DNA: Top News
Scientists have developed an algorithm that can help identify potential sex offenders in online chatrooms, especially the ones who are most likely to set up face-to-face meetings with children. Law enforcement officers are often inundated with cases involving the sexual solicitation of minors - some interested in sexual fantasy chats, with others intent on persuading an underage victim into a face-to-face meeting. The Chat Analysis Triage Tool (CATT), developed by researchers at Purdue Polytechnic Institute in the US, allows officers to work through the volume of solicitations and use algorithms to examine the word usage and conversation patterns by a suspect. Data was taken from online conversations provided voluntarily by law enforcement in the US. "We went through and tried to identify language-based differences and factors like self-disclosure," said Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, assistant professor Purdue Polytechnic Institute. Self-disclosure is a tactic in which the suspect tries to develop trust by ...

Apps to ensure online safety of children may be counterproductive 5.4.2018 DNA: Money
Turns out, applications to keep children safe online may have an opposite reaction. According to two studies led by the University of Central Florida, mobile apps designed to help parents keep their children safe from online predators may actually be counterproductive, harming the trust between a parent and child and reducing the child's ability to respond to online threats. According to the national Crimes Against Children Research Center, 23 percent of youth have experienced accidental exposure to internet pornography. Another 11 percent have been victims of online harassment and 9 percent report receiving unwanted sexual solicitations online. In a pair of studies led by the University of Central Florida, researchers examined the types of parents who use parental-control apps on their teen's mobile smartphone, whether the apps actually helped keep teens safe online, and what teens and younger children thought about their parents using these apps. For a generation that has grown up with network ...

UK's sadistic, paedophile academic gets 32 years in prison for online abuse 19.2.2018 DNA: Popular News
A Cambridge University graduate who admitted 137 criminal offences involving online abuse, including encouraging the rape of a four-year-old boy, was sentenced on Monday to 32 years in prison. Matthew Falder, who dubbed himself "666devil" and "evilmind" online, blackmailed many of his 45 victims into sending "severe abuse images" of themselves, according to Britains National Crime Agency (NCA). The images were defined as "hurtcore" by prosecutors. "Hurtcore does what it says on the tin really -- its aim is to hurt the individual to their very core," NCA investigator Matthew Long said. Falder, whose victims ranged from young children to people in their 30s, would pose as a woman and get his victims to send naked images. He would then manipulate them into sending increasingly depraved abuse images. Judge Philip Parker described the 29-year-old as an "internet highwayman" who had a lust for controlling and tormenting victims. "It is a tale of ever-increasing depravity," he said. "The effects on the girls, ...
