The poster for this movie shows Acid Burn and Crash Override with various words and ASCII symbols transposed on their faces. Amongst the words are:
- 1. Names of hackers in the movie, including Lord Nikon, Acid Burn, and Crash Override
- 2. Some of the commonly-used passwords, according to Plague, such as God, Sex, Love, and Secret
- 3. Phreak - a "phone freak" - a hacker who concentrates their knowledge on telephone systems. (Phantom Phreak was the main Phreaker in the hacker group)
