This morning's Canberra Times has a substantial article on page 3, headed
"Unsolicited child porn e-mailed into ACT homes".

It's an unfortunate headline which infers that child pornography was
actually received, rather than "just" and ad for same.

A couple of quotes:

"... a joint investigation by the (Australia Federal Police) and (the FBI)
was already underway."

"It appears to be the 21st century equivalent of a stink bomb in the mailbox."
