Adrian Dabrowski gives a talk about Hollywood Hacking at the Troopers16 in Heidelberg.
Abstract: Why did it take 15 Years to finally being able to transfer a Winword file between Mac and PC without troubles, but one can write a 0-day virus for an alien computer system invading the earth with their spaceships in just a few minutes? (Independence Day) How the hack do you update the firmware of a plane in mid-air while chasing that plane in a car? (Scorpion). And why do Movies always feature impossible IP addresses?
Medical doctors aren’t the only ones to suffer from exaggerated expectations caused by Hollywood and TV series.
In this talk, we use plenty of movie excerpts to give you an amusing rollercoaster ride through the ups and downs of screenwriters imagination on computer security.
