So did they get it made or not?The poster bore the logos of both the National Crime Agency and West Midlands Police.
But both have now tweeted they were not involved in its production.
The West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit said the poster was supposed to be "a quick reference guide".
Indeed.Good intentions - bad execution...
I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or legitimately believe what you wrote but I strongly disagree.
Because the media and others have made "cracking" and "hacking" synonymous. Anyone "hacking" is therefore automatically deemed to be up to no good.
Activities which have a positive benefit for the participant and/or society rather than negative outcomes.
You fall into the same trap they have, suggesting "Kid at home on a computer" is good, "out roaming the streets" is bad. In fact both depend on what they are actually doing while engaged in either activity.
That is very confusing. Either you take what I said as sarcasm, that I do not believe what I said literally. Or you take it at face value, that I do believe what I said literally. But either way you want to strongly disagree! How can we know what you are disagreeing with?Imperf3kt wrote: ↑Wed Feb 19, 2020 4:35 amI'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or legitimately believe what you wrote but I strongly disagree.

Please clarify. Are you saying that peer to peer communication over the net is somehow evil and worthy of the parents calling the cops?
a carpenter's hammer, a kitchen knife, simple ballpoint pen, are examples of everyday tools that we use, mostly for constructive purposesHeater wrote: Quite so. As others have pointed out it's a list of software tools. Like all tools they can be used constructively or destructively.
From the horse's mouth, West Midland's Police ...
No. That would be Ada Lovelace.
What, you did not have bolt cutters in the house when you were a teenager? I did. And all manner of other interesting tools. Admittedly no lock picks.
That statement does not make me feel any better about it. Sure it was made by a third party, the police don't make their own riot shields either.hippy wrote: ↑Thu Feb 20, 2020 11:57 amFrom the horse's mouth, West Midland's Police ...
"The poster - produced by a third party - was created as an aide memoire to assist teachers with safeguarding in schools. It was taken from wider information on cyber tools which could be used to commit cyber attacks, but equally have a legitimate purpose".
