Access to most popular porn websites blocked


PETALING JAYA: Eight out of ten of the world's most popular porn websites have been successfully blocked by the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

These blocked websites include xVideos.com, PornHub.com, xHamster.com, Xnxx.com, RedTube.com, YouPorn.com, Tubecup.com and beeg.com.

These websites were part of the top ten most visited porn websites based on data from Internet information provider Alexa Internet.

The ninth most popular website on the list was inaccessible, but the MCMC page block notification did not appear when checked.

However, the number eight website on the global list was not blocked and still accessible.

On Tuesday, the MCMC announced that it had blocked 1,074 pornography websites for violating the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said a total of 106 more sites would be blocked for the same offence.
