A cyber security expert has warned a Facebook page set up to rate the attractiveness of Shepparton youth could be dangerous.ASHLEIGH WILLIAMSON January 16, 2013 12:56pm
It is the sort of Facebook page described as a ‘‘paedophile’s paradise’’ — and police are monitoring the page containing pictures of Shepparton youths for child pornography.
The page features pictures of mostly teenage boys and girls and encourages followers to discuss their attractiveness.
Almost 2800 people have followed the page, which The News decided not to name, since its creation on January 8.
The page’s information section encourages its users to ‘‘send us in some hotties’’.
Cyber security expert Susan McLean said the page had the potential to attract the attention of paedophiles.
‘‘These sorts of sites become a paedophile’s paradise because they can go there and look at all these allegedly attractive young girls or boys,’’ Ms McLean said.
‘‘There’s the perve factor that’s a concern.’’
Detective Senior Constable Gary Dean said police would monitor the page to ensure no child pornography was posted.
