Interesting but a bit complex

By Tito

from Mayagüez, PR

Comments about PBS NOVA: Rise of the Hackers DVD:

Very good and interesting. I learned the importance of primary numbers for encoding data that runs through the Internet in the fight against hackers. Also, liked the detailed coverage of complex methods that are being developed like quantum processing and paranoid cryptography to battle hackers. This DVD worth the purchase for its content, although some themes are a bit difficult to follow, you can always go back and pick up the information and spare time to really understand it and think about it.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Rise of the Hackers DVD:

This was honestly like a cyber horror movie. It was scary to learn about how simple and dangerous computers are at the core. However, this was a very entertaining and informative program to help build awareness of cyber crime and hacking.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Rise of the Hackers DVD:

This program opens your eyes to the power of computers and exposes our vulnerability to cyber-attacks. Makes me want to disconnect from the internet and use cash for my transactions!
