    My favorite is the NCIS example (under “Live Action TV”) wherein McGee and Abby are freaking out typical Hollywood style and Gibbs introduces some reality via a calm unplugging of the computer. :)

    Would be effective, had you programmed your system to block access to IP addresses after the first 25,000 attempts to break into your system. Or if you’re a normal programmer who knows there is a remote access loophole- 3.

    That being said, the real reality is the hackers already have all your personal information and used your computer to send a million or so spam messages before you ever know they were there. And when you block them they move on to the next sucker.
