Hot off the presses folks – coming up in a matter of minutes (!) – the next in the Hacker:HUNTER series of online documentaries on cybercrime! And timely it is: it’s about how, during the pandemic, hackers have been exploiting the situation to steal ever more data and money more than before. And they’ve been exploiting the fact that most folks have been working from home too. But wait – they go even lower…
Since the pandemic really kicked in, cybercriminals have been hacking and causing all sorts of trouble for medical institutions and research centers. Some cyber-scum having been searching for get-rich-quick schemes (and often finding them), while others – the more sophisticated groups – have been hunting today’s most valuable medical research information. And our new documentary – Hacker:Hunter: Ha(ck)c1ne – Healthcare on the Edge! – is all about this.
The film shows us how, against the backdrop of coronavirus, the devoted, selfless, hardworking folks working to save lives became targets of super-advanced cyberattacks, while those seeking data on vaccines against COVID-19 have been turning to cybercriminals to pilfer it.
The film is the third season of the series of investigative documentaries about cybercrime – Hacker:HUNTER, released as part of our Tomorrow Unlocked online project.
The first was all about the Carbanak cybercriminal group, which several years ago managed to steal a billion dollars from ATMs in different countries around the world.
The second told the story of the infamously awful WannaCry ransomware attack.
The series is getting really good reviews too, with high IMDB ratings. So, if you’ve seen everything worth watching while spending a lot more time at home than usual, here’s something new for you – here!
And the premiere is, like minutes away – 15:00 GMT (16:00 BST – current UK time).
