Actually many of Cory's books could be made into a movie. The only issue is that not many people want to do it 'cous the CC-BY-NC-SA. Maybe we could make the whole script/storyboard and post it to see who has the balls, and the talent, to make a whole movie totally for free. Maybe I will make a short movie based on Printcrime.(Overclocking Short Stories) It will definitely rock.

There is one that I've seen. But it was a real exploit at the time. It was the second Matrix movie where trinity goes after the power grid. She uses NMAP http://www.insecure.org
From the site:

She whips out Nmap version 2.54BETA25, uses it to find a vulnerable SSH server, and then proceeds to exploit it using the SSH1 CRC32 exploit from 2001

I know this topic is about a month.. but it's still fun to post to. I just caught "The Recruit" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0292506/ from 2003 the other night (had already seen it but I watched through it again) - Colin Farrell and Al Pacino, CIA stuff... The hacking involved was decent I'd say. I particularly love near the end when he is trying to setup his laptop to stream Pacino's confession to the feds, but his connection fails... so he just sets up a video loopback so when he reveals it, Pacino just thinks he got busted... not to give away the ending.... I'll watch it again someday because Bridget Moynahan is hottt with 3 t's. Since that movie, the CIA has actually restricted the use of removeable media devices such as USB sticks. The master evil virus referred to ac Ice-9 also has some roots in hacking reality... as we see now 8 years later, one of our biggest national security concerns revolves around the potential of hackers to take over utility companies.

Thought I'd throw out Live Free or Die Hard (4?), but saw it was already mentioned. Also found this site which lists several others I haven't seen.

I found the fat guy in that movie to be hilarious.

I imagine some of the computer-related aspects of the movie are possible, though often improbable. What I got a kick out of though was that tired role of the 'computer genius' typing 200 words a minute and never hitting a roadblock in anything they set out to accomplish. It's half funny and half annoying, because you know that's what drives novices into the field, full of unrealistic expectations of what they might do with computers with a modicum of experience and dedication.

Otherwise though, I enjoyed the movie. Minus what I just said, I found it enjoyable and recommend others watch it. Not too many moments where you'd scream 'that's BULLSHIT!' but overall a pretty funny movie for the intended humor.

"Hackers" (if we are talking about the same movie ..) is not reality.

I see alot of the docu-drama stuff has done well... eg: The Social Network, Pirates of the Silicon Valley.... of course depicting hacking on screen would be mega boring, perhaps time-lapse photography of the energy drink cans piling up and ashtrays overflowing... I have a decent movie title in mind... 'skiddie'

in other news.. found a cool article/interview with kevin mitnick http://5magazine.wordpress.com/2010/06/09/kevin-mitnick-one-of-the-most-famous-hacker/


Hahah! "Skiddie" ... I love it! I'll get started on a poster :P

Has anybody thought of Garcia from criminal minds?! I always get a kick out of those hacking scenes. Especially when there's a little thing I like to call "hack-tag" where there are two people in separate places, hacking eachother back and forth to see who's better at it.

Hacker 1: *Punch 3 keys* *hacked*
Hacker 2: *Punch 5 keys* *hacked back*
Hacker 1: Oh you're good.. *punch 7 keys* *hacked back!*
Hacker 2: Damnit! *Punches 10 keys* *computer shuts down* :o

Wanna laugh? Here's an angry hacker moment from Garcia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=893RTrpboHI

Did anyone mention Jurassic Park (the first one) with the Newman guy from Seinfeld? THAT guy is 100% true depiction of hacker. Makes me think of Monica.
