PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (October 21, 1998 - Radio Australia)--- Authorities at the University of Papua New Guinea have recruited the university's security service to help track down staff and student downloading of pornography from the Internet.

Radio Australia correspondent Sean Dorney reports the authorities say the problem has gotten out of control and is tangling up the university's computer network:

"Two weeks ago, one student sent an anonymous e-mail to staff at the University of Papua New Guinea's computer center threatening to kill anyone who cut off the students' until then unencumbered access to three pornography sites, including one called "Black Hardcore."

"According to the chief of security at the University, Mike Moir-Bussey, that student has now been identified and will face disciplinary charges.

"In his latest Campus Security Brief, Mr. Moir-Bussey says the Computer Center has reported what he calls an amazing 3,000 downloads of pornographic pictures from the internet over a four day period.

"Sean Dorney, Port Moresby."
