Google, Microsoft Move To Block Child Porn

The news comes a week after the arrest of nearly 350 people around the world in an international child sex abuse investigation.
Google and Microsoft are working to clear the internet of child porn.

Google's executive chairman detailed the efforts in an op-ed for the Daily Mail.

More than 200 Google workers spent the past three months working on preventing child sex abuse content from appearing in its search results.

And Google cleaned up results for over 100,000 searches known to lead to child porn results.

Another 13,000 searches related to child porn will lead users to warnings, saying that child sex abuse is illegal and offering advice on getting help.

Also, new Microsoft picture detection technology applies a unique identification mark to child porn content.

Then all copies are immediately removed from the web.

Google says Microsoft deserves a lot of credit for developing and sharing that technology.

The news comes a week after the arrest of nearly 350 people around the world in an international child sex abuse investigation.

Those arrested include 40 teachers, six law enforcement workers, nine pastors or priests, and some doctors and nurses.
