Passengers Worried X-Ray Security Shots Will Wind Up On Facebook And Myspace
Passengers are worried that pictures from a new x-ray security camera, the "virtual strip search", will end up online and display their privates for the whole social networking world to see.
Readers feel the new security measure has gone too far.
"Sure as heck, some customs officers will make snide remarks about young girls with breast implants and people with piercings in private locations. You betcha some will appear on Facebook or MySpace," said a post on news.com.au
However, authorities insist there's nothing to worry about.
"Faces are blurred and images are not saved and cannot be transferred," said Office of Transport Security executive director Paul Retter.
Oh yeah, because I'm dying to see some fuzzy monochromatic images of a chick's privates on Facebook. Wait....I think I am. Sweet!
