At some point internet pornography got a really bad reputation for spreading malware. While it’s true porn dialers and other viruses disguised as fuck flicks were rampant two decades ago, nowadays things are a lot cleaner. Thanks to Pornhub, finding erotic content on the internet is easier and safer than ever.

However not every porn website is as honest and pure as those in the Pornhub Network.

Apparently one company is so desperate for advertising they resorted to distributing their adult malware through mobile apps associated with products commonly consumed by children. A developer managed to get a handful these nefarious packages published that appeared as addons for Minecraft, the popular video game where kids build castles and then never stop talking about them.

Somehow the infected apps made it through Google’s screening processes and were readily available on the company’s store. They were downloaded hundreds of thousands of times by people expecting videogame addons and instead got a crippling dose of porn on their devices. Cool!

Oh wait, I mean how horrible…

Since the first commercially available porn was uploaded to the internet, people have been trying to make sure only adults (with money) have access to it. As every generation is more tech savvy than the last this is becoming extremely difficult. When some parents are unable to control what their kids are looking at on the internet they often end up accessing porn which they then use to learn about sex.

We once read about a documentary that suggested a combination of the internet and conservative views about sex education have resulted in a generation that learned about the birds and the bees from hardcore porn. The film suggested that because the depiction of sex in porn is nowhere near that of real intercourse, these youths go on to have a really twisted view of intimacy and the opposite sex.

It’s actually pretty tragic. If only there were a system for public schools to teach kids about sex before their hormones kick into overdrive and they figure it out from a 20-year-old Tera Patrick video.

At any rate Google removed the nefarious apps from their marketplace and banned the developer who submitted them but not before they received a handful of 5-star reviews. This may indicate there is an untapped market for adults who enjoy porn and Minecraft. Maybe somebody needs to stack a bunch of extra sexy cubes together, provide the proper adult rating, and see how deep this rabbit hole goes.
