Documentary Description

The internet is touted as one of the most important inventions in the history of modern man, and like the discovery of the atom, its ability to benefit mankind is matched only by its potential to unleash massive destruction. This documentary offers an unprecedented glimpse into the world's newest and most vulnerable frontier: cyberspace. We enter the world of hackers like Mafia Boy, a high school student who rose to infamy in 2000 after single-handedly shutting down numerous internet giants — including Yahoo, Amazon, eBay, Dell, eTrade, and CNN. Web Warriors takes us into the cyber trenches of a worldwide battle. Rare interviews with cyber sleuths from the FBI, the Pentagon, NATO, and the Department of Homeland Security reveal how cyberspace has become a battleground between nation states, terrorist groups and criminals.
