Love this series. Please do about interrogation techniques. Or investigative interviews. Although I might be expecting too much since too many films using "good cop bad cop" technique as if it's the magic one.

Really good, but that's not what 'phreaking' is. Phreaking was dealing with telecommunications directly, usually doing stuff like building 'boxes' for getting into telnet systems, or doing loop around conference calls. The fact that there was a phone involved doesn't make it 'phreaking', that's just how modems worked back then.

When showing an illustration for Samy's words "console or terminal", WIRED actually showed an editor. I perfectly understand the error, he mentioned code and having a visual access to it, but a console is much more interactive and has a much different aspect and purpose. Otherwise, greatly pleasured to have Samy Kamkar on the channel :)

I love how so many hackers in film and tv type like an old grandma... I get that they have to slow the typing down some to show what is being typed, but the level they turn it down to is laughable :P

Why not play the full clip and then have his analysis afterward? The flow of the video is disrupted when he is suddenly cut off by a random clip of the movie/show. It would make more sense if the clips added further context to his breakdown but they don't.

dude they are showing graphical representations so that guys like us cn uderstand what's happening. Or maybe they made a programme which automatically hacks target and shows you graphics, and maybe they are so badass hackers that they don't want to see what they're typing and hacking continues in the background

no the movie makers made stuff that is interesting to look at because neither they nor their audience know how hacking looks or would find it particularily exciting

I agree on every word what this guy say except for one thing. IP address is not the physical address. It's the MAC address is the physical address.... Or maybe I heard him wrong. 😅😅😂😂😂

Sooooo on the matrix part, you failed to mention NMAP. Which is surprising because as a hacker, the output was the first thing I recognized. How are you going to talk about accuracy and completely fail to mention the most popular tool that is in full display on that scene?

he said that IP address is a physical address of a domain name. NO. IP address is always logical. 7-OSI model. The physical address of a computer/ server is actually a MAC address, even though MAC sits on layer 2, on top of layer 1 (called physical layer). But in TCP/IP model both OSI 1-2 are combined into network access layer and this is why people will say that MAC address is physical. Matrix scene, they are using Nmap, witch is a legit tool for network scanning. As you can see, she typed .. and this means they are connected locally because is a local IP pool. "Linux OS" ?? ITS THE GNU/Linux OS (RMS, you can thank me later)
