At 7, I'd chuckle, a few more years of similar behavior, I'd be more concerned.
Here's the thing, knowing that you have to "hack a server" doesn't begin to explain how to actually do it. Anyone can toss terms like that around. I
guess I'd want to explain to the youngster that it's a crime. Sure, it's a game you are talking about, but hacking is a crime, and so is stealing,
would she like it if some kid nextdoor saw something through her window and decided to come steal it? Probably not very much.
You can't really expect to let a kid use the internet and have them not pickup some of the lingo. Actions speak louder, is this the only devious
thing she's tried to pull? I mean, in the grand scope of things it's pretty harmless. I'd actually be more concerned with that she might be reading
in the youtube comments than her wanting to get a free sword in minecraft.
Without getting into specifics, I am a computer guy by hobby and trade, I have done programming but mostly stick to the hardware side of things now.
My "hacking" experience would be cracking peoples wifi passwords (once because my work network blocks too much stuff including ATS, the rest to force
the people to secure their wifi points).
One day, I check on facebook, FACEBOOK, and a relative is asking me to "hack" into a competing private college's computer network to steal prospective
student contact information. This relative is not computer literate, I had to talk them through switching their laptop display from sideways to
normal. Yet this sounded like a business proposal. Not only could I not do it, I was confused as to why they would like I even could.
CSI. Your kid watches csi right? lol
