New York Times’ Paul Krugman Says Somebody Else Is Using His IP Address to Download Child Porn

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said someone he does not know is breaking into his computer and illegally downloading child pornography.

“Someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography,” Krugman told his Twitter followers Wednesday. “I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me.” . . .

Past reports documented instances of people using another person’s Internet Protocol (IP) address to illegally download pornography. Investigators arrested one man in New York whom they determined downloaded child porn, according to one 2011 report by Syracuse.com.

Investigators eventually discovered the man’s neighbor was downloading pornography through open wireless signal.

Federal laws prohibit the production and distribution of child pornography, and people who are convicted of obtaining or exporting such content face severe statutory penalties. Federal prosecutors arrested several child pornographers in 2019. (Read more from “New York Times’ Paul Krugman Says Somebody Else Is Using His IP Address to Download Child Porn” HERE)
