  • Is it legal to host a website that has discussion about ethical hacking? for example hackforums.net?

    The site has hacks that can be considered illegal if you use them against someone without authorization. But perfectly legal if you use them on your own computers or sites. I'm asking if its legal to discuss potentially illegal things.

    Andrew’s Answer

    Have you asked Kolh's if you may return the product. I suspect that would be an easy outcome.

    Afterwards, you can use social media (Yelp, twitter, etc.) to alert the public to what you found.

    The authorities have plenty to do without getting involved in Internet squabbles. While they will investigate credible threats of serious bodily harm seriously, they will tell you to take other squabbles to civil court.

    What you describe above does not raise to the level of a threat the authorities would take seriously.

  • Is it illegal for someone to send a picture of a sexual act over the phone to someone else?

    I got involved with a woman that liked pictures and sexual activities. Never done this before in my life. I sent it to someone else.

    Andrew’s Answer

    Adults are free to cyber sex, but minors are not. Even having a picture of one's self if you are a minor is considered having child pornography. If the pictures have been sent to someone there is the added charge of distributing child pornography. The authorities take these actions very seriously and will charge offenders when found.

    Finally, nothing good ever comes from sexting. Even adults will find that when one party gets mad at the other their pictures are spread all over the Internet and then they will spend a lot of time and effort, and even money to get these nasty pictures removed.

    DO NOT ENGAGE IN CYBER SEX - NOTHING GOOD EVER COMES FROM THIS ACTIVITY.
