Re: Good hacker movies?

All of them are mentioned already, but for the record:

- Hackers 1
- Takedown (aka Hackers 2)
- Antitrust (aka Hackers 3)
- Sneakers
- Wargames

.. are my favorites.
I always get the urge to do some security stuff after I saw those :) Cost me a lot of nights already lol.

Sneakers - I'd have to agree.

As for TV...Tiger Team was a neat show.  Too bad it had only a couple of episodes.

I have to completely agree with that. It was awesome. I'd like to see A&E actually make it a regular show (according to the wiki page).

I saw both episodes. I liked the car dealership episode more. I think part of the problem though, is getting the clients to sign off on being on the TV and getting a bad rep after having been broken into.

Re: Good hacker movies?

Very true.  Although the companies in the episodes do get major upgrades to their security because of their 'faults'.  If the businesses take it seriously, I'll bet that it would be even harder to get in.  Then again...just like the jewelery store, all you need is a receptionist willing to stick USB sticks in without thought.  :P

Anyone seen Live Free or Die Hard?  Just saw it last weekend.

Re: Good hacker movies?

Wow, I can't believe people don't like Wargames or Hackers, those two movies are part of the reason I am in IT to start with.  I love those movies.  Die Hard 4 is also great, I think most of the good ones have been mentioned already.

Re: Good hacker movies?

Not sure if it really counts, but Inception? I'd say there is a good deal of "hacking" and social engineering involved, though the fact that they are in a dream and technically hacking into a guys brain, it's a little different I guess.

Anyway, awesome movie!
