Wargames Turns 25

I was flipping through some channels on the TV tonight and saw that AMC was showing the movie Wargames for its 25th anniversary.  Good stuff!

I remember the “bad old days” when systems were compromised by “inane” stuff like:

  • people picking easy to guess passwords and writing them down where others can find them
  • leaving backdoor connections to sensitive networks available for discovery by the public

Good thing we’ve moved beyond all that…
