UK urges parents to report their kids to police for using normal technology

Police in the UK are distributing a flyer to teachers in public schools, to be passed on to parents.

The poster warns parents to check their children's computers for certain technology, as it could be a sign that their child is a hacker.

The flyer names anonymous browser TOR, voice chat service Discord, computer operating system Kali Linux, and Virtual Machines used to run different operating systems on the same computer.

These are all, by the way, perfectly legal. And they are useful for plenty of activities besides hacking.

The poster says Discord is "often used to share hacking tips." But you're more likely to find a teen using Discord to chat while playing Fortnite.
