My son says his computer was hacked and all of the porn and Craigslist emails in the history are not his. How likely is this?

Lololololol. Hold on, catching my breath...NOT VERY LIKELY. I'm a mom too, kids will say ANYTHING to not get in trouble.

I think he just didn't want to get busted... lol... I remember when my mother found my yuri (wasn't very hard) and asked me if I was lesbian (I said no of course, fearing she wouldn't love me) but I came out a few years ago :P of course I like guys too, so it wasn't as much of a hard hitter

He should have asked what you thought you were really teaching him by invading his privacy.

Lol. She wasn't invading his privacy. As a parent, we are supposed to monitor our children; especially on the Internet.
Report as
Oh I don't know... you're absolutely right she shouldn’t invade his privacy to see if he's looking at porn and ordering from Craig's list. And when that pedophile comes knocking at their door maybe she should just let him in no questions asked... we wouldn't want to invade the kids privacy!!!!! You know because he's being so honest and responsible!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? It's called being a PARENT!!!!!!!

Sorry you found out the hard way, Mom. My kids grew up in a world without the Internet and even then they found ways to get away with all sorts of things. Kids are experts at deceiving their parents -- it's in their job description -- and his trip into porn isn't too surprising.

When I was a boy I loved getting my hair cut because, in those days, all the barbers provided girlie magazines to read while we waited. They were very innocent with the nipples and genitals air-brushed out, but they were exciting to us. It's all part of growing up.

Let me put it this way.... why would a hacker put porn and craigs list ON his computer in the first place???? Hackers take things FROM your computer to rip you off and I'm pretty positive they can't ADD history..... he's full of...... well you know!!! good luck!!!

From a scale of 1 thru 10...approx .035.
Hackers are looking to make money, and will RARELY not KNOW whose computer they hack. The porn and everything else in it is his.
Now ...he's not only into what all the kids are into now a days ...but he's also lying to you in your face.
We ALL want our children to be as we think of them in our minds..but that's what happens when we let them have free rein into the internet.
God bless you.

Most of these answers are from experienced mothers and fathers who have children including me. I'm sorry but these are your son's. No one would hack to PUT things INTO the computer . They hack to take things OUT. Now you have problems . These may have been sent out to others probably to those under 18 if he sent them to friends. If you want to spend the money, someone could go into it and tell you everything that's been going on.

At the time I first connect to the Internet I was dancing with a club called the Mountain Time Swingers so I went looking for their web page.

Well...

It was educational and entertaining. Google, of course, reacted to "swingers" and I learned very quickly just how much porn there is on the net.

The club later changed their name. Whew!
Report as
They change their names so fast that someone can type in White House and it could be a porn site. Well, I don't know if it's the same way as paying as what happened to a friend of mine with her son, but I hope she doesn't get a $900 phone bill !!!

Ouch! I hadn't thought of that one. That'd really hurt.

Your son is going through a phase. You are never going to stop him from looking for porn on the Internet. You can load any software out there, and try and of the "tricks" suggested by others. He's a boy, he is going to find naked pictures no matter where he goes. If you shut down his computer, he will find a friend who has parents who don't take the steps you are contemplating. I'm not saying to advocate it - you're a mother - it's your job to bust his chops about it. But, there is not much you can do. Accept the fact that he's sexually curious. Trust me, this curiosity will stop when he reaches 97. Ohh God, I'm almost there. ;)

It may look bad but it actually does happen. Sometimes people send malicious emails with viruses in them. You know your son better than anybody but if I was him I would really appreciate getting the benefit of the doubt. Email viruses are no myth. It is a possibility.

My dad knows me better than almost anybody, and when he found out I used to watch p0rn he was so confused, just because you know someone doesn't mean you know everything about them ,like I am an underaged smoker( don't like it, but I am) and only about 2-3 people know it. Well, now more but you get the point.

You are probably minutes away from a Community College where computer forensics is taught. Most will assist in your inquiry at no charge. If this concern persists, your son's classmates are likely as suited to do a little detective work (heh heh heh).

OK well this is coming from a software engineer, a younger man (22 years old), and a hacker. This IS POSSIBLE! Before I continue let me tell you though that he is lying. A hacker does not compromise someone else's computer to look at porn. They just don't.

I don't think so but don't shout on him. Just make him aware that its not the age of doing all such things. Instead of wasting time on such things on internet better he could get some knowledge on his hobbies, favorite subject or anything that make him happy.
