Submission + - Report Finds More Government Workers Misusing the (freeaccess.com.au)

destinyland writes: A new report to Australia's parliament announces a 54% increase in government workers misusing the internet. In fiscal year 2010, 313 different federal workers came under investigation for improper use of e-mail or the internet, up from just 202 in the previous year. The report — available online as a PDF file — also discovered that nearly half the investigated workers were in the Australian Tax Office, according to an Australian technology blog. "Maybe it's just a case of particularly boring work making such distractions more attractive," they suggest, since the report blames most of the discovered cases on one-time incidents of poor judgment.
