Kali Linux's official Twitter account states, "I need to admit that it's great to provide a roadmap to show children where to start. The easiest way to get kids to do something is Tell them you can't or shouldn't, and then post a list of things you shouldn't do.Kali Linux Online ManualWas not included in the list. "He tweeted, pointing out that the prints issued by NCA and ROCU make children more likely to be hacked.
Have to admit it's sort of nice they give kids a roadmap on where to get started.We all know the easiest way to get a kid to do something is to tell them they can't or should not, then they list specific item not to do. To bad they did not link to https://t.co/PsPfjHrXcr

I want to meet the "genious" behind this leaflet.I bet this was written by one of those people who also believe that heavy metal will make you a satanist and video games a serial killer!

"Too ignorant. The skills in working with these software can help build a great career in information security. If I find these softwares on my child's computer, they will help my child It's even better for parents than to find out where their children are using illegal drugs. Learning about information security is great! "
Ignorance.This could lead to a very well paying career in infosec.I would support my kid if I found this on their computer.Better help parents find out if kids are doing DRUGS.DRUGS are bad, learning infosec is fine !!

"Rather than learning about hacking,Dungeons & DragonsIt's more likely that you're using Discord for that. "
There's a greater chance your kid is using discord to play D & D than learn to hack.

"What a shame, all of these tools are for legitimate uses. For example, virtual machines are a great way for children to learn about Linux (including Kali Linux) and prepare for the high-paid career in computer engineering. It's such a ridiculous ignorance and terrible point! "
Such an embarrassment. Those are all tools for various legitimate uses.VMs, for example, are how your kids can learn about Linux (Kali, too) to prepare themselves for a high-paying career in computer engineering.Such ludditish ignorance and fearmongering!

"After Brexit, the UK seems to be looking for enemies above the EU. The UK / Tor & Linux & virtual machine UK / Infinity War will soon begin."
After the #Brexit, it seems like the UK is looking for more enemies than the EU.

"If you are smart enough to use such software, you should be able to change the icon and hide the software."
If a kid is smart enough to be using these, then they will also be smart enough to change the display symbol and also hide the program.

"I watched several hours of" hacking tutorial "videos on YouTube, as if they were comprehended by someone who came to know what they were. Do some serious research or hire a consultant. Should be. "
This looks like it was put together by someone who spent a few hours watching "hacking tutorials" on YouTube and has no real understanding of what any of those things are or how they work.
Seriously, @WalsallCouncil do some actual research or hire a consultant.
