PhotoDNA Seeks Child Porn

Microsoft has acquired PhotoDNA, a technology that can identify child pornographic images even if they have been altered. The company donated its usage to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in 2009 and Facebook will be first in using it to identify and remove thousands of registered illegal images.

There are estimates that at least 50,000 child porn photos are transmitted online every day and this could be one more step to find the ones who are doing it as well as protect the victims.
