IT security expert arrested for kiddy porn

Written by Nick Farrell



Vice president of security

The appropriately titled vice president of computer network security at BNY Mellon investment services appears to have been sharing kiddie porn on a P2P network.

Duane Amity, 45, of Monroeville, has been charged with downloading images of girls between 2 and 10 years old, some of which were shared on a peer-to-peer file-sharing network. Investigators found the term "PTHC" in several search returns and in a text file that contained URL links and file descriptions similar to ones that may contain child porn, according to the complaint.

Amity told investigators he knew the term "PTHC," which often stands for "pre-teen hardcore," because of computer investigations he did at work. He denied seeing the text file and, at first, said he "did not know anything about child pornography. " Later Amity admitted that he had looked at child porn, downloading then deleting images of girls between two and 10 years ago.

He could not offer an explanation, except that he had been molested as a child and that might be why, according to the complaint. He claimed he shared the file accidentally. If only he had some knowledge of IT matters he would not have accidentally made a torrent file and start sharing the kiddie porn with paedophiles.
