UK police deny responsibility for poster urging parents to report kids for using Kali Linux

Even worse is that Discord is on there. Discord is very popular amongst the gaming community for chat, voice chat, and similar gaming related activities.

And writing groups, TTRPG/Board Game Groups, Mechanical Keyboard groups, etc, etc.  To say that a platform for chat, etc, is a symptom that your child may be into hacking is incredibly irresponsible.

Finally, here’s a secret weapon to use against all those despicable robocallers

Worthless as most are in other countries that US Federal Law can not touch. As one person on Reddit commented this will only stop once the carriers prevent spoofing of numbers. Till then it is a whack a mole as blocking numbers mean nothing. I myself get numbers I do not know and call back to find they are live numbers of people who have been spoofed.

Only real way to deal with it is to just block unknown numbers and hope real people leave a message.

Amen to that! One of the guys here in IT got a spam call last week that appeared to be coming from his own number.

Hackers exploit critical vulnerability found in ~100,000 WordPress sites

WebARX researchers discovered the vulnerability and reported it to ThemeGrill developers on February 2. The plugin developer didn't issue a fix until Sunday. Websites that use ThemeGrill should update immediately. Better yet, as Böck recommended, they should uninstall the plugin altogether.
