Released in mid-January, the movie Blackhat centers on several cyber-attacks perpetuated against a Chinese nuclear facility and the stock market, and the hunt for the perpetrator of the attacks by Chinese and American law enforcement agencies. As with many movies centering on hackers and cyber security, expectations for accuracy were fairly low among experts in the field. We at SecureState decided to watch the movie and note any of the ridiculous inaccuracies here. Be forewarned, there are some minor spoilers ahead.
