Porn activity detected at DHS (maybe)

`The Homeland Security Department’s internal computer network generated 65 million security alerts during a three-month period and 6.5 million of those may be linked to employees accessing pornographic words or materials, according to a report today from DHS inspector general Richard Skinner.

Nearly three-quarters of the automated “security event messages” and “detect.misuse.porn” alerts originated from 16 devices on the department’s wide area network, according to the report. However, DHS could not identify the specific workstations that had generated the messages, the inspector general found. [..]

In addition, the DHS network did not have its security accreditations and certifications, the report added.’

That’s 406,250 porn hits per device. Presumably a “device” is a router or somesuch, because that’s a fucking lot of porn for a single person.
