To clarify, we haven't told ppl to download a program to begin hacking. We have told them to read and learn.
However, if they ask a specific question that may deal with a type of hacking, we generally refer to a tool. Now, hackers.com is a PoS site. You have to get a feeling for what sites are trustworthy. With a topic such as malicious hacking, of course, the chance of illegit sites are more common. Just use the resources that we explicitly name, and even then make sure to only use the reputable sites.
