Soft has developed a new product - Predator
Guard - that scans all text on the computer screen, in any software
program (Microsoft Word, Outlook Express, or any IM application), "notices"
when that text could be threatening to the user's well-being, and ends
the IM or chat session if the user tells it to. The software also captures
and logs "violations" - messages that contain language a sexual
predator would use - for use as evidence by law enforcement. The product
that allows it to do these things: 1) a "library" or database
of about 250 terms and phrases typically used by sexual predators or pedophiles
(e.g., "Are you home alone?") when they're trying to engage
chatroom participants and 2) technology that monitors, detects, and logs
that text, checking it against the database.
Security Soft worked with computer-crime experts in police departments
for about two years to develop its database of pedophile language. This
company apparently also went through thousands of chat logs that had been
used as evidence in successful prosecutions of sex offenders, looking
for patterns in how the offenders had gained victims' confidence. (Note:
