  3. O LOL ! says:

    Worst editing in video analysis ever๐Ÿ˜

  4. Half of what he is saying I do not understand.. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ uhh nope I do not understand all of it๐Ÿ˜ง

  5. Shows HTML code when talking about terminal ๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. RocketLR says:

    Dont forget the new jurassic world movie. When they "hack" the door console to escape the bunker. If i remember right. All they did was write in some Linux console "Door open". Youd think they would have some form of security instead of an global bash command x'D

  7. 0:41 lol I don't think you'll hack much just in the front-end page of a website :p. You might as well just DDOS them at that point.

    Or inject a iframe of Rick Astley – Give You Up, that would be funny.

  8. Should have show him movie "who am i – no system is safe"

  9. 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.

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

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

  12. Daniel Lee says:


  13. 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!

  14. MaSHED T8RS says:

    Itโ€™s actually pretty cool I understand most of this stuff like what exploits they are using to do the hacking I just donโ€™t know โ€œhowโ€ they did it

  15. 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 ๐Ÿ˜†

  16. 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.

  17. check out top hacker shows us how its done.

  18. It just a movie scene mf

  19. Rodolfo Luga says:

    I didnt see phishing

  20. Jesus, the editing in this is ludicrous, It's a shame because the guy talking seems very intelligent and I kept me interested but the awful editing really undermines this.

  21. RC Alonday says:

    Can you do the hacking of Anais in the Amazing world of gumball? I heard that's pretty accurate.

  22. Saitama says:

    Never mess with that guy.

  23. Frostwaffles says:

    I was watching nba games , how did i end up here?

  24. I'm sure the ridiculous over the top depictions of hacking are there for entertainment purposes only. I don't really blame them. Real hacking is boring and not fun to watch. It also makes since to not show too much.

  25. Jett Pearson says:

    take a shot every time he says "actually"

  26. Gianni Slewo says:

    person of interest ???

  27. mph town says:

    criticizes movies, shows html tags when discussing console

  28. Matahoo says:

    best way is to show a terminal to look at code for hacking shows html

  29. The amount of ads is crazy

  30. Ivana says:

    Samy – dream of every sapiosexual. ๐Ÿ˜

  31. KB Lake says:

  32. Beep beep beep everywhere!
