A recent paper, penned by one of Microsoft’s top security experts, has said that kids are actually public enemy number one for IT security.
The document is meant to be presented at the SOUPS 2013 security and privacy conference in the UK and claims that generally the user will stuff up most software, but people really need to think of the kids.
The document of Microsoft researcher Stuart Schechter is titled “The user IS the enemy, and (s)he keeps reaching for that bright shiny power button” and investigates the security and privacy impacts of kids and childhood on home technology. According to the researcher, children represent “a unique challenge” to the security and privacy considerations of the home and technology deployed within it. The paper says that there’s a gaping chasm between the regular approaches technologists apply to problems of security and privacy and those used by people who deal with this adversary on a regular basis. Indeed, addressing “adversarial threats from kids” using traditional approaches to PC and information security will be a real disaster.
The paper explains that kids usually need to be protected from harms they can cause themselves. Protecting kids from themselves is something different from protecting systems from external threats, because kids can’t be re-architected or expected to operate under layers of physical protection. In addition, it was rarely appropriate to remove children access to the home or its essential systems. In other words, IT security and privacy have to be adjusted to take into account the needs of childhood development, while a home with perfect security might stunt a moral and personal growth of the children.

|Since when has a kid been hacked or had their credit card info stolen? Just stay the hell away from our kids Bill.|
Unfortunately Bill isn't seeing the things at MS, otherwise MS wouldn't have taken the stupid decisions lately.
|you fools, with everyone trying to speed things up saving your card and personal info, kids dont get hacked, kids dont get there credit card sh!t stolen, They get you hacked, they get your sh!t stolen. Stupid kids make you unsafe. 5 minutes online is all it takes, they play a stupid game or browse through some porn clip picture maze trap website and bam, they downloaded that thing youve trained yourself to ignore and close a thousand times over and when you get back on you didnt even realize that you are now compromised. kids and computers are like kids and guns, you gotta get em young, and train the shit out of them, then no one dies|
|@goreknight you are very right on what you said unfortunately when people talk about child safety on the net they are usually talking about against child sex predators and not about people who exploit children for their parents info or their info you can ID theft a child just like you can a adult|
|This is interesting when you realize Microsoft's marketing division is going after teens full-tilt to sell their products. This article was a wake-up call for parents to do some actual parenting, rather than having soccer moms buying their teen a laptop to shut them the h*ll up.|

|ban kids from the net unless the parents relise that they are responsable for their children! only idiots would give a child a loaded gun and tell them to go play so why do it with the net?|

|I Think that parents have to avoid giving any technology with active wifi or any other type of internet connection|
at the end the problem which arrived by any children parents has to face that
and then parents will relise waht they have done
|Like they give a f*ck. F*cking puppets.||
