The most dangerous tool any child predator has is the Internet. New York Times investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald, spent four months studying how predators share their dangerous secrets online.

"The Internet breathed new life into this community," Kurt says. "And the Internet became the new lifeblood for them and has truly given it knowledge, power and ability it did not have before."

Although Kurt says he doesn’t believe this online community can be conquered, he is optimistic that they can be fought through diligence and education.

"The way they are successful is through our ignorance," Kurt says. "The way they are able to get away with the things they are able to get away with is because what they are talking about is so disturbing to so many people that they don’t want to face it. But when we don’t face it, we are actually putting our kids at risk."
