I have a 14 year old son who seems to be quite clever with computer stuff. He is a gamer and has also been teaching himself to create programs and those little windows pop up boxes. I need to give him direction in his computer stuff but have no idea what he is doing let alone how he is doing it.
He talks about IP addresses, hacking, blocking hackers, dossing, automatically resetting an IP, having a fake IP. I ask him what he means and he says that if anyone looks up our address, they will see we are in India or something like that. I have no idea on how to help him and I am hoping there are some rioters out there that can guide me in trying to keep him on the right side of the law as I can see him having a future in this computer stuff somewhere.
He worries me as he is into things I can’t even begin to understand. I’ve tried to investigate courses but haven’t been able to find anything suitable. Most courses are for kids 16 and over.
I’m looking forward to your replies.
[ED – if he isn’t spoofing his MAC as well then all he’s got is a false sense of security]
