Storyline

Web Warriors is a documentary that defines the conflict, establishes the stakes, and reveals the combatants in the escalating global battle taking place in cyber space. The film features computer hacker Michael Calce (aka Mafia Boy) who explains how as a 15 year old student he shut down Yahoo, Amazon, CNN, and Dell - from his bedroom. Viewers will watch grey hat hacker Donnie Werner (aka Morning Wood) as he comes face to face with the Russian cyber mafia as he searches for the creators of a new computer virus. Web Warriors is a wake-up call that we have entered the era of digital warfare where the stakes continue to escalate in a battle that now costs the global economy more than $500 Billion annually.

Hype, Half-Truths, and Misinformation
7 November 2016 | by lordsnottSee all my reviews

I'm genuinely surprised by how melodramatic and poorly made this documentary is. It's basically the modern version of "Fear the Reds Under the Bed!" It assumes it's audience has little to no technical knowledge, and then feeds them misinformation and half-truths.

It constantly misuses terms such as "virus" and "hacker", claims DDoS attacks are so powerful they send "other hackers running scared", and claims Yahoo is the most power and important website on the 'net (laughable even for 2008). It plays dramatic music while it's histrionic voice-over speaks of menacing "hackers" that can access any information from any computer on Earth.

This documentary interviews a cracker (which of course they call a "hacker") who claims that within a week he can shut down every power-station in the US as well as completely shutting down the US military. He does this with a straight face.

I'd group this documentary with other farcical nonsense like "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed". It's rubbish, don't waste your time.
