g0bshiTe writes "Security Focus has a write up about a Boston man had his company issued laptop taken away by the company when a spike in the billing of his internet usage to the box was noticed. Upon inspection child pornography was found in the temporary internet cache, and he was fired. When the incident was reported to authorities, the prosecution and the defense both agreed that the porn was a result of his employers "lack of security features" on the laptop. All charges were dropped. Even though he was not responsible, how do you recover from this. Imagine losing your job, your family, respect, not to mention the little gaff from the Boston Herald. This is reporting at it
s finest, this man's life could be ruined though he was guilty of nothing but having this story break on a slow news day."
