GBI Warning on Child Porn Video Attachment

July 1, 2009

DECATUR – The GBI’s High Technology Unit is warning the public about an email that has showed up at least twice in Georgia that has an explicit child porn video attached. The version of the video in the Georgia cases is about 6 minutes long and shows a white male having sex with what appears to be a two or three year old girl.
The email may be distributed by a worm virus through Microsoft email services such as Hotmail accounts. It has as the subject the following:

"VERY Disturbing! TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS/ they should kill this man, do not open if your sensitive...click video link"

The GBI is warning the public NOT to open the attachment and to contact the GBI if they received an email with the above statement in the subject line. Because it could be distributed by a worm virus, the email could come from someone you know, and that person would have had no involvement in sending it.
It is a felony crime to possess child porn in Georgia.

The FBI is aware of the email chain that has been circulating with the subject line "VERY DISTURBING...." and has a child pornography video attached to the message and they have an open investigation into the matter.  The video that is attached to the message has been available for several years, but the adult male in the video has not been identified.  There is an outstanding John Doe warrant out for him, please reference http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seekinfo/johndoe8.htm

The GBI’s Tip-line number is 1-800-597-TIPS(8477).
