Indian embassy website converted into teen porn site

You are looking for the Indian embassy website in Bahrain and you Google “Indian embassy Bahrain”. The first result? A teen porn website! The portal once owned until last year by the embassy has turned into a site promoting teen pornography.  Batelco, the local internet provider, blames the embassy for the oversight.

Indian embassy officials have admitted that they were not aware how their old website address had been converted into a porn site.

An embassy spokesman said told the Gulf Daily News that it stopped using the address last summer, but never realised it would resurface as a site selling pornography.

“We stopped using this address in July last year after we were not satisfied with the service we were provided by the administrators,” he said.

“Ever since we changed to the new address, www.indianembassybahrain.com, we have had better services and have had a lot of visitors using embassy services. But, we have also been receiving scores of calls from people complaining about the old address being used for pornography.”

He said the embassy had tried contacting those behind the Teen Porn site, but e-mails to their officials have drawn a blank, he said.

He explained the embassy simply stopped using the old website address when it changed administrators and was shocked to discover the old address was now being used to peddle porn

However, technicians insisted that the embassy should have secured the name even if it decided to use a different one.

As a non-registered domain, and like any .com domain, it could be owned by anyone and updated from anywhere in the world.

The Teen Porn website describes itself as “an exclusive hardcore teen site that has a nice looking, easy to navigate tour that is splashed with some very nice sample movies.”
