Civil servants fall for cyber sex trap

2012-09-19 13:20

Taipei - Nearly 1 000 civil servants in Taiwan must take classes in cyber security after falling for a trap set up by their employer to test internet safety, an official said on Wednesday.

The government of New Taipei City, near capital Taipei, sent out an e-mail in August which claimed to contain a steamy sex video in order to check how carefully its 6 000 staff were protecting their computers against hacking and virus attacks, she said.

Despite strict bans against checking non-work related e-mails, nearly 1 000 employees opened the fake e-mail, which alluded to an ongoing and much-publicised celebrity sex scandal.

Those who failed the test will be required to attend a mandatory two-hour internet security course.

Taiwanese prosecutors are currently investigating the celebrity sex case, which allegedly involves a Taipei socialite drugging and sexually assaulting several women, including models and actresses, local media said.
