Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency Warns Employees to Stop Watching Online Porn

| by Michael Allen

The Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency has warned its employees and outside contractors to stop using government computers to access porn websites.

Bloomberg News reports that the Missile Defense Agency's Executive Director John James Jr. sent out the one-page warning last week after government employees had been caught “engaging in inappropriate use of the MDA network.”

In the July 27 memo, obtained by Bloomberg News, James wrote that “there have been instances of employees and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images.”

"These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources, and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code."

Missile Defense Agency spokesperson Rick Lehner told Bloomberg News that the incidents were limited to a “few people,” who may have exposed the Missile Defense Agency network to porn sites which contain viruses or malware.
