Christian Watkins : The editor must actually HATE this man to be constantly cutting him off with movie clips after every 8 words.

Maxx B : I love that you can almost hear him trying not to roll his eyes at some of the worst clips.

Sam Dietz : This guy is what you call a white hat hacker. He tests security systems for people and companies and he helps adjust their flaws. Note: this comment was for the idiots I saw in this comment section who thought they brought a criminal on to youtube

Max Villela : He seemed so interested in Mr. Robot and then . . . . you showed NCIS to him. That's rude, man. 6:04

Petelo : Its probably so cringy for him to watch these hacking scenes

Ron : "...would be a terminal" *shows HTML in a text editor*

Epic Gentleman. : When i use cmd my teacher thinks im hacking

Carlo Bassetti : The guy at 4:00 wears sunglasses while in front of a pc... so, totally legit hacker, move on.

Pavel Shemyakin : If I may make a suggestion.... In my opinion, the video would have been more enjoyable if the cuts between the movie scenes and the commentator were a bit less hectic. It felt like I'm listening to a podcast over a very slow internet connection that keeps getting paused. Great video otherwise. Thumbs up.

Jay HM : Samy: "So in this-" Editor: *FUNNY CLIP HERE* Samy: "clip" Editor: *FUNNY CLIP HERE* Samy: "the hacker is-" Editor: *FUNNY CLIP HERE*

Funeral enthusiast : Could y’all do funeral directors You’d be surprised how inaccurate media portrayals are

Leigh Smith : That was a pretty long password for someone who can't tell the difference between a pdf and executable file 😂😂😂😂😂

woodstockanhaenger : Please re-upload without the constant interruptions by 0.5 sec clips, thanks

Spicy Cat : The three ways to hack. 1. Weak password shots. 2. Fishing through bins. 3. Social engineering.

Unholy Motherfucker : He respec He protec But most importantly He hac

Otto von Bismarck : I'm just here for the blood of the editor.


Camel Reloaded : "A more accurate interface would be a console or terminal" > WIRED proceeds to show HTML code. Edit: Nvm, the editing in this was far more distracting than that. But seriously, you have a video about the miss interpretation of hacking and the editor miss interprets it... That's just golden.

Ezequiel Marchesini : You should ask an astronomer to break down space movies.

Maya Rouillard : I can't believe they forgot the most accurate hacking scene of all time, Hackerman hacking time itself

Gt Trai : "what is that a video game?" "NO..WE ARE GETTING HACKED" 7:00 best line EVER XDDD

Andreas L. Elexander : love his smile when the hacking is inaccurate x)

Alexandru Popescu : The more you know the higher the probability you won't like a movie.

Fire Tiger : WANna DoWnLoAD SoME RAM!?

Allyssa Buthmann : Rude! I can’t believe you didn’t include Arrow clips with Felicity Smoak!

Apex05 : Samy Kamkar also is the hacker who took down myspace

CFX ThoomZ : This video is perfect. The guy does not try to be funny or something. He is just himself and calmly explaining. I love this content

WildRandomVideos1201 : 0:39 I don't think that HTML and CSS can hack a computer.

The Hated One : The editor is doing a great disservice to what this guy is talking about.

Gregory Mahan : OMG. As someone who was alive in the 80's, and in the computer scene at the time, I gotta tell you... Hacking in the 80's wasn't called phreaking. I've seen this video like 3 times, and every time I get to that line, I cringe. There were 3 common terms in use: Hacking: Breaking in to remote systems. So hacking was absolutely the correct term to use here. Phreaking: figuring out how to get long distance phone calls for free, usually by manipulating weaknesses in the telephone system of the time. Cracking: taking copy protection off of software, mostly games. Sometimes, all three of these could be used at once. You might hack into a remote system, grab a copy of some software, crack the protection on it, and then phreak yourself a connection to a long distance BBS to distribute your ill-gotten gains.

Joker : Me: types color 2 in cmd *HACKERMAN*

Your friendly neighborhood retard : I’m a hacker I got banned in Fartnut and made a new account 😎

Ben Miles : "That's a pretty long password for someone who can't tell the difference between a pdf and an executable." Love it. About spit out my coffee.

jotabeas22 : I want the thumbs of whoever edited the video. Awful. All that interruption is pretty much adding length and noises - both unneeded. Crappy.

Benjamin Lewis : The more efficient way would be a terminal... Shows HTML

Daniel Carvajal : Trinity did all right, she scanned the network with nmap and found the SSH Service running on port 22. Maybe Trinity had her own developed tools ("SSHNuke"), That actually exploits a real Vulnerabilitie called "SSHv1 CRC32". So the matrix Hacking escene is really acurate.

Viktor Pedrova : "Uh-oh. We're being hacked!" A siren starts blaring as flying unicorns erupt in sparkly clouds, bursting forth on roads of shooting rainbows. It's all too much! The percentages and popups cloud the screen while Puff the Magic Dragon plays the accordion!

CruxLuthica06 : Just open cmd in front of your friends, you'll be recognised as a hacker.

SuperPantMan : This guy is extremely knowledgeable and Wired should really stop with the 'funny' little edits during his explanations


Rabbit Cube : I'm surprised that Person of Interest didn't warrant a mention. Props for mentioning Sneakers, though

Eric Lopez : I would have to say MR. Robot followed a lot of real life techniques even if they did put that Hollywood spin on some of it. I really like the editing

Pand0ra Skye : Lol if anybody was to ever hack my device to blackmail me through photos all they would get are albums of memes.

RodrigoCL : "They show a visual interface, [but] a more accurate interface would be a console or a terminal..." Shows HTML code in a dark background editor.

Sergio Alvarado : Tried, but couldn't sit through this editing.

Akhil Raj : Mr Robot is the best after all 😁 Though the matrix 'one' was so good! Like perfectly timed dialogues and all

Paul Eugenio : if (movie != Mr Robot): print("Complete theatrical trash.")

Mitsuko Megumi : “ping localhost” *I’m in*

MsCunningLinguistic : WIRED: *shows Kamkar the double-typing NCIS clip* Kamkar: *giggles*
