A computer hacker who broke into a lecturer's homepage and posted pornographic pictures is being hunted by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.


The pictures and links to hardcore Internet porn sites were found on the homepage of Dr Benjamin Yen, assistant professor of the Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management Department.


A university spokesman said the pictures had not been posted by Dr Yen. 'The professor wouldn't put something like that on his own site to embarrass himself,' the spokesman said.


The matter was investigated on Tuesday and the material has been deleted.


'The chances of identifying who put the materials on the site are slim,' the spokesman admitted. 'These kinds of hacking activities are common anywhere in the world.' Dr Yen was not available for comment.
