Re: A parent's primer to computer slang

Who cares.  Its high-level for parents.  Why would you expect any of
this to be absolutely current or accurate?  I would compare talking to
most parents similar to talking to PHB's.

Is there something here to be disclosed about MS trying to provide
information to parents so they at least have some sort of clue as to
what their children might be doing?

I would think its good that they even trying to broach the subject.

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,
