    Undermining Net filtering seems to be a full-time job for
graduate student Bennett Haselton. Today he is at it again.

    Haselton launched a program that easily generates a valid password
the prominent Net blocking software Cyber Patrol 4.0. Using Haselton's
"CPCrack" program, a minor could sidestep the Cyber Patrol controls
his or her parents had installed on a Windows operating system to
limit access to sexual, profane, or violent content on the Net.
