Most Dangerous Town on the Internet
After learning that Romania is the epicenter of global non-government-sponsored hacking, my partner and I came up with the idea of doing a Vice-style documentary featuring these real life hackers and the people that fight against them, which the creative teams then ran with.
The story features a town nicknamed “Hackerville” that made over $1 billion last year in cybercrime and is also responsible for hacking NASA, the Pentagon, the Royal Navy, Google, Hillary Clinton, and the Bush family. Originally conceived as a one-off show, the results were so fantastic that Norton is making it a series.
This is the trailer for that show. It’s available in its entirety at mostdangeroustown.com.
