Hacker Breaks Down 26 Hacking Scenes From Movies & TV | WIRED


Carolyne Geng says:

I believe one of the producers? directors? on Mr. Robot has a background in cybersecurity, so they take it to heart to make every scene as realistic as TV will allow them. Very interesting stuff.

JustYourAverageGirl says:

So disappointed they didn't do Person of Interest….so much you could have done there.

JustYourAverageGirl says:

I know this is tv and movies only, but would have loved to see him break down Watchdog's.

chist this is hard to watch. cool idea for a video but this editor is a lunatic! show one clip talk about it. it isnt rocket science!

Skyler Dunham says:

Literally lorem Ipsum 0:42

MaSHED T8RS says:

It’s actually pretty cool I understand most of this stuff like what exploits they are using to do the hacking I just don’t know “how” they did it

Anthony Craig says:

I like how when Samy talked about "code" in a "console or terminal," the Wired video editor used a screenshot of a text editor filled with HTML 😆

John David Dunson says:

8:50 actually, it is accurate. he wasn't describing how the code actually exists in the system. he was describing how the ad has another invisible link on top of it. so when you try to click the ad, you're really clicking the invisible link. i.e., invisible "code" on top of the ad's visible "code". i mean, it's a somewhat misleading way of describing it, but i can definitely imagine an IT guy explaining it that way to someone to give them an explanation without going too deep into how it really works.
