I’m a filmmaker who frequents reddit. I co-wrote and produced SEARCHING and RUN. And most recently I’m a producer on JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH.
My writing partner and I know nothing about the actuals of cybersecurity beyond what’s in the movies and occasionally a headline, but so we’d love to talk to any security experts or programming experts or malware experts or white hats or black hats who could answer some very basic questions, for example:
We’re currently developing a movie that involves malware/hacking. To put it naively, at one point in the film, a character has to gain access into a government computer server. The plan would be to hopefully trick government employees into plugging in a USB that looks harmless but actually is a ‘trojan horse’ that grants our character a remote link.
THIS IS JUST FOR A MOVIE. Just wanna be as informed as possible.
Thank you in advance!
