An investigation is underway after a disturbing child porn video surfaced on people's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Eyewitness News received dozens of complaints and the NYPD launched its own investigation.

When Zenobia Merced opened up her Facebook page, she saw a new posting from a friend, and a link to an untitled video and she thought nothing of it.

"You saw a little kid, and I thought he would be doing something funny," she said.

Eyewitness News also received scores of similar complaints on our website, about the sexually explicit video showing a little boy and a woman. The NYPD also received complaints and by Friday, had identified the company that allowed the video to get online.

The video link was quickly removed from 70,000 servers nationwide. "As for the crime we think it happened in Jamaica," said Police Commisioner Ray Kelly.

The FBI is now working with authorities in Jamaica. A lof of people were not only outraged at the video, but at how people were sharing it.

Lance Usaloff of PC Magazine says there's a bigger potential danger from opening unknown links or emails. Cyberterrorism where the intent might be to take over your computer and use it for a purpose you can't even see.
