Porn emails sent to kids via school emails

(CNN) – An Oregon school district is investigating after an entire high school was sent pornographic e-mails.

The sexually explicit e-mails generated big buzz on campus and left school leaders scrambling to stop the messages.

This is a screen grab of an email we can show you.  It thanks students for joining a porn web site and other emails weren’t as tame.

“Yeah, they were pretty bad. It showed pretty much what you’d see on a pornography site,” Nate Maitlen is just one of many teens bombarded with sexually explicit messages on their school email accounts, “It was blowing up all over social media. People really wanted to find out who was doing it and they wanted them to stop.

In a statement, Principal Karen O’Neil told parents, “We are appalled by the content of these emails and regret that students would receive this type of material in their email in-boxes.”

By Wednesday night, the spam grew so out of control, school leaders deactivated the network, which many students use to complete assignments.

“A lot of us, including me weren’t able to turn in work today because they had to shut down the whole system,” said Maitlen.

The school was quick to point out the emails were just spam and that no one had found their way in to the district’s computer system.

If the whole thing turns out to be a prank from a student, Nate can only shake his head, “Pretty much just grow up, you’re almost an adult, start acting like one and just be mature.”
