A parent's primer to computer slang

M$ is informing the public about scriptkiddies: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/children/kidtalk.mspx but 
unfortunately, their information is incorrect:
"Characters of similar appearance can be used to replace the letters they resemble." --> The only two words in 311715h 
written with a $ are M$ and Micro$oft.
"sploitz" (short for exploits): Vulnerabilities in computer software used by hackers. --> A vulnerability is called a 
"vuln" and a tool (mostly a program or script) exploiting the vuln is called an exploit or "sploit".

Cheers,
SkyL1n3d.
