i remember one movie or TV show where there are two guys on a couch relaxing and one guy is on a PC anxiously slaving away and the two guys on the couch are still chilling out and then the guy on the PC says 'it's the FEDs you idiots!' then the other two jump into action. then i'm pretty sure they wipe the PC's before the FED's show up.

anyone know what this is from? i really can't remember.
Sounds like an episode of Lone Gunmen... i'd have to rewatch them to be sure, but definitely sounds like something that would happen there...

Swordfish

Hugh Jackman has 60 seconds to hack the Department of defence while Halle Berry sucks him off... If Hugh fails, Vinnie Jones will blow his brains out... Incidentally, this is how any respectable computer science graduate program handles its doctoral exams...

It wasn't Halle Berry in that scene. It was some blonde.

Wargames. The way Matthew Broderick's character "hacks" into the school's computer system is still the most realistic way it happens in real life.

I'm wondering why there hasn't been a remake of this movie. It can be all dark and gritty, and the world is actually destroyed at the end.

Or a sequel, where he now has kids who are into hacking like he was, using more complex methods than what was available during his time.

Oh right, I think I had heard of it, but never seen it. Either way, they can forget it ever happened.

The hacking depicted in the german movie 23 was quite realistic.
Then again, that was based on real events, so i'm not sure it counts.
