AU - Net Nanny a part-time supervisor, says report +/-
(Sydney Morning Herald) Net Nanny 4.0, the internet filter provided by the three largest service providers, Telstra, Optus and OzEmail, is so ineffective it is about to be ditched by the Australian Broadcasting Authority due to its high failure rate. According to tests conducted by the CSIRO, Net Nanny 4.0 failed 38 per cent of the time. Other products on the approved list were worse - Cyber Sentinel failed more than half of the time (53 per cent). The broadcasting authority, which regulates the list of approved products, released the figures in its submission to the ongoing government review of the content regulation scheme. The Communications Minister, Richard Alston, is expected to report back within weeks.
