    90% of hacking is social engineering. Computers are perfectly safe and secure, its the people using them who arent.

She does this by simply looking up their security contractors on their website, targeting an executive who's likely to have such access, then heading to his social media page to learn some of his interests. Based on this, she quickly throws together an e-mail containing a hostile link based on those interests (i.e. a spear phishing attack). The guy no doubt thinks that the e-mail originated from one of several doggie forums or mailing lists he has subscribed to and doesn't question it - clicking the link and thus giving her access to both his computer and webcam. One RDP later and his machine is compromised, giving her pretty much everything she needs.
    Didn't even know they made an Eight. But good on them for doing a good job there!

    It has an amazing cast (Sarah Paulson, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkwafina, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and many others) and it made a decent chunk of change thankfully, so we may get another one.

    Yes. When there are big system vulnerabilities they can have a big impact - hacks like Heartbleed, Spectre or Meltdown, are good examples of this - but despite their big impact, those make up a very small percentage of the successful breaches compared to the ones that are rooted in human foibles.

    Which makes "perfectly" a bit of an overstatement, but I get your point.

    EDIT: Sorry, missed this from the last page:

    She created it - at 2:50 in the linked clip you can see her nudging one of the cameras out of position to cause a coverage gap. (I'm sure some amount of analysis was involved with selecting that one though, especially given its proximity to the women's bathroom.)

    And the Honest Trailer is out now! Though not really covering anything that hasn't been covered elsewhere.

    I'll be honest, those visuals look awesome. Now I kinda want to watch it just for the eye candy.
