TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (130)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Newlaunches.com, via Slashdot (from Saturday, August 25; links good at time of posting):
Tom Wood, a Year 10 student, probably 15 - 16 years old has cracked the [Australian] federal government's $84-million internet porn filter in just 30 minutes. He can deactivate the filter in several clicks in such a way that the software's icon is not deleted which will make his parents believe the filter is still working.
