If you haven’t watched “Web Warriors”, then you’re in for a treat.
Meet “Mafia Boy”, a 15 year old high school student who rose to infamy in 2000 by causing millions of dollars in damage after single-handedly shutting down internet giants – including Yahoo, Amazon, eBay, Dell, eTrade, and CNN.
And Donnie, who goes on a journey into the Russian cyber underground as he searches for the creators of a computer virus with the hopes of collecting the $250,000 bounty being offered by Microsoft.
Learn how “Botnets” are being put to a variety of illicit uses including identity theft and cyber extortion, as well as becoming the latest weapon being deployed in military conflicts. Web Warriors dissects the massive cyber attack against Estonia in 2007 which virtually shut down the country and resulted in NATO deploying its cyber response team.
Web Warriors offers rare interviews with cyber sleuths from the FBI, the Pentagon, NATO, and the Department of Homeland Security who explain how cyberspace has become the latest battle ground between nation states and how terrorist groups are already plotting their next move.
