Rise of the Hackers


I recently discovered this amazing video on Netflix titled Rise of the Hackers.  I showed it to all of my classes yesterday.  It contains cutting edge, up-to-date information (2015) about computer viruses, hacking and encryption.  You can view this video online for free right now through several links (although I can’t guarantee that they will always be active), through Netflix or by purchasing it through Amazon.com

If one of the links doesn’t work, you can try to find it on YouTube or Google
