TV sitcom opens up the world of penetration testing


Oh dear...

Who else has visions of attackers being displayed graphically breaching firewall "shells" to get to some core system?

Or worse, it could be Hackers all over again...

I try to let it wash over me, but when a movie/TV gets IT so seriously wrong (Swordfish, etc.), it really shatters my suspension of disbelief. Actually, even books; I'm not sure I ever finished Dan Brown's Firewall (I'm not even sure why I started it...).

Ah, well. Almost beer o'clock.
