MCMC does not act on its own in combating online pornography –
.

SHAH ALAM, July 12 (Bernama) — The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) does not conduct on its own any surveillance or survey of pornographic websites, especially those offering child pornography, said Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo.

It would only help the police and other relevant authorities upon request in taking action against pornographic websites, he said.

“MCMC will assist the authorities in certain cases. That’s their action. Even in online gambling too. When there’s any request, they will assist,” he said at a press conference after launching the Integrated Parcel Centre (IPC) expansion project here today.

An online portal reported that a new police unit, equipped with the latest technology right out of ‘Mission Impossible’ movies, has been recently set up to sniff out online pornography.

Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division (D11) principal assistant director ACP Ong Chin Lan said the sole remit of the newly-launched Malaysia Internet Crime Against Children Investigation Unit (MICAC) was to monitor traffic at pornographic websites, especially those offering child porn.

It would locate and pinpoint in real time, 24/7, Internet users surfing these sites and build a ‘data library’ of these individuals – what portals they frequent, how long they spend on the sites, and the files they upload and download – that will help the authorities in prosecuting them.

Police will pick up those who visit these sites regularly and use a software that was specially developed to allow them to identify, locate and track visits to porn sites, especially those involving child porn.

The intelligence will be passed on to the MCMC to obtain the Internet users’ details.

Are you watching child porn? 

“We will pick up those who visit these sites regularly. We use a software that was specially developed to allow us to identify, locate and track visits to porn sites, especially those involving child porn.

“It is an offence (under Section 292 of the Penal Code) to download or upload pornographic material. Now, with the unit ready to go, we can seize and confiscate handphones, for example, for inspection. This will be done on a case-by-case basis.

Individuals who upload and download smut, even in the ‘safety’ of their own homes and with handphones, be warned! You’re being monitored, writes ALIZA SHAH.

A new police unit, equipped with the latest technology right out of Mission Impossible movies, has been recently set up to sniff out online pornography.

Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division (D11) principal assistant director Assistant Commissioner Ong Chin Lan told the New Straits Times that the sole remit of the newly-launched Malaysia Internet Crime Against Children Investigation Unit (Micac) was to monitor traffic at pornographic websites, especially those offering child porn.

It would locate and pinpoint in real time, 24/7, Internet users surfing these sites and build a “data library” of these individuals — what portals they frequent, how long they spend on the sites, and the files they upload and download — that will help the authorities in prosecuting them.

The division, she added, would work towards enhancing its system and expanding its coverage to include those who surfed pornography.

“We will pick up those who visit these sites regularly. We use a software that was specially developed to allow us to identify, locate and track visits to porn sites, especially those involving child porn.

“The intelligence we get will be passed on to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), so we can obtain the Internet users’ details.

At the time the NST was given a tour of the system, which was around noon, the computer monitors were lit up and peppered with multi-coloured balloon markers indicating the location of some 2,500 IPs nationwide that were uploading or downloading pornographic material.

The balloon markers were divided into seven colours, each indicating the file-sharing platform being used to share explicit contents.

Ong said data from a report by the Dutch police identified close to 20,000 IP addresses in Malaysia actively uploading and downloading explicit images and footage of minors.

The report also established that Malaysia had the highest number of people uploading and downloading child pornography.

Ong said Micac had the power to seize handphones, computers or laptops to check for pornographic material.

“It is an offence (under Section 292 of the Penal Code) to download or upload pornographic material. Now, with the unit ready to go, we can seize and confiscate handphones, for example, for inspection. This will be done on a case-by-case basis.

Malaysia tops in South-East (sic) for online child pornography

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia has the highest number of IP addresses uploading and downloading photographs and visuals of child pornography in South-East Asia, authorities have said.

The number of children falling prey to perpetrators whom they befriended online is also reportedly increasing fast.

Many Malaysian parents let their children use handphones without monitoring them, and more than 60 per cent of children spend time in online chatrooms on the Internet on a daily basis.

Data shows that close to 20,000 IP addresses in Malaysia upload and download photographs and visuals of child pornography and that the country ranks top in South-East Asia in this regard.

Asst Comm Ong Chin Lan of the Royal Malaysia Police’s Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division (D11), in a seminar on “Cyber Protection for Children”, revealed that based on data furnished by Dutch police based in Malaysia in 2015, about 17,338 IP addresses involved in child pornography were from Malaysia.
