IT Worker Accidentally Broadcasts Porn
Watching porn on your work computer is never a good idea, but it's an especially bad idea when your job involves testing a Jumbotron outside the train station of a major city in China. Last week, computer technician Yuan Mou inadvertently broadcast ten minutes of porn to hundreds of on-lookers gathered outside of the station in Jilin City.
Yuan was hired by Southern Advertising Company to repair the giant LED screen, which had malfunctioned sometime in mid-June. Repairing the screen was apparently something of a full-time job, and Yuan took up residence inside the building the screen was attached to in order to finish the repair.
One night last week, probably after a long day of work, Yuan fired up his DVD copy of The Forbidden Legend: Sex and Chopsticks on his work computer, not realizing that the computer was still connected to the LED screen. Approximately ten minutes later, he received a phone call from his employer, letting him know that the porno was being broadcast to hundreds of onlookers scattered throughout the station's square.
Yuan immediately disconnected his computer and ditched the DVD, but by then it was too late. Jilin police took him into custody for questioning on Friday, and he reportedly confessed, though it's unclear if he's been charged with any sort of crime.
