OK...yeah...so actually CBS cut many of the scenes we put together and
seemingly tried to make it "more Hollywood style" aka "unbelievable".
At least they left in the scene with RSnake's fierce.pl and metasploit
on Kali Linux. In the original version, the plane at the end was
hacked via wireless; _NOT_ an ethernet cable. That was ridiculous in
either case. So, you should all probably go watch "The Listening" aka
the Italian film "In ascolto" instead:

The Listening / In Ascolto

Or if you want a _REAL_ history lesson:

The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone
