Hollywood and IT

    Dear Khabrovites.

    Done the stupid IT scene in American films. Years go by and idiocy only grows. How long?

    The stupidest thing I saw was a scene of a virus infection of an alien ship in the film "Independence Day."
    The stupidity was called the criminal and hacker from Finland “Torvalds” in the film “Password Swordfish” . In the same film, scenes of hacking and penetration into the network were “good”. All this fuss with running numbers is completely crazy.
    The image of a blogger in the film "Friend of the Bride." There was a “crazy blogger” with thick lenses on her glasses, an open mouth, who looked idiotic at those around her and for any reason tried to make a blog entry.
    In general, any scene of detection of penetration into the system is shown by a red large plate half-screen with a flashing inscription "danger" or something like that. Nowhere are visible menu items, and navigation, as well as who for what and where. There are no such interfaces.
    If someone wrote a virus, then he puts all the computers on the network floor full control in seconds, and as proof, all computers together show the picture of a “hacker" (the movie "Recruit").
    If the network has come under control, even the management console freezes so that everything becomes clear that something is wrong here (as in “Terminator 3”).
    It is not clear why this is happening, there is no money for a competent consultation with specialists? Unlikely.
    I am sure that everyone has encountered similar mistakes. I suggest here to write about such high-profile IT mistakes. Screenshots will be especially valuable.
