Better be careful of what you are doing online!

A new unit in the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) force known as the Malaysia Internet Crime Against Children Investigation Unit (Micac) has just been launched, and they will be under the Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division (D11).

This unit’s responsibility is to monitor traffic at websites with pornographic content, especially if there is child porn involved, according to an exclusive report by NST. To help them with this important duty, they have new technology that is so cool, it’s like something right out of the movies. Although the reason they need it isn’t so cool!

This new technology will help them identify and locate Internet users who surf porn sites in real time. Micac will use the information collected such as the IP address, the portals they visit, time spent on the sites and the files they upload and download to build a “data library” of these people. This is to ensure that the police will be able to prosecute them once they have enough information.

Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division (D11) principal assistant director Assistant Commissioner Ong Chin Lan said,

“We will pick up those who visit these sites regularly. We use a software that was specially developed to allow us to identify, locate and track visits to porn sites, especially those involving child porn.”

“The intelligence we get will be passed on to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), so we can obtain the Internet users’ details. We will then call them in for questioning or we may even arrest them at their homes or wherever,” she added. They’re on to these predators!

The cool new software, which is from the United States, is known as the Internet Crime Against Children — Child Online Protective Services (ICACCOPS). Don’t think that you are safe if you do it through your phone, as the technology is advanced enough to even detect the activity on mobile phones. All in real time too!

Previously, a report showed that Malaysia had the highest number of IP addresses uploading and downloading child pornography in Southeast Asia, which is definitely a cause for concern.

Micac will also be empowered to confiscate handphones, computers or laptops so that they can check for any pornographic material inside.

“It is an offence (under Section 292 of the Penal Code) to download or upload pornographic material. Now, with the unit ready to go, we can seize and confiscate handphones, for example, for inspection. This will be done on a case-by-case basis. I am sending my officers overseas for training, and we have the support from the United States’ Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),” Ong explained.

Statistics showed that there were 3,781 pornographic websites blocked in Malaysia from 2014 until the end of March.

These predators should be caught and punished for disseminating child porn!
