I hope this doesn't come back and bite me in the ass, but I'd appreciate some input from other members. This might be a "Duck And Cover"
situation, but I want to put it out there to get your thoughts.
I spend a lot of time fixing the bugs that people get on their computers, and I get an insight into other people's lives as I go through their files.
I don't think I've ever had a machine on my bench that didn't have some porn files of video or pictures, but that's not the problem.
I just worked on a machine that had underage porn in one of the user log-ons, but the user is only 13 years old. His search history and some of his
files were clearly what most of us would consider illegal, and I deleted everything when I cleaned the system.
I don't think I should tell his parents because he is looking at girls his own age, but I worry that they could be busted for something their son is
I really don't know how to deal with this.
Is it still kiddie porn if it's a kid that's looking at it.
My opinion is that he's a typical boy that wants to look at girls, but the stuff he had would put any adult in jail. I'd appreciate any opinions on
this, but I'm thinking I should just let this slide because he's downloading stuff in his own age group.
What do you think, should I tell his parents, or should I take his secrets to the grave and save the boy any embarrassment ?
