And that's probably the most legitimately accurate to this day.  I remember actually referring to them as auto-dialers until a couple of years after the movie.  You would get several numbers in a prefix (at least in Houston).  And if there was a login, half the time it was something crazy easy.

In the early to mid-80s we would often get connected to a teletype machine (or similar).  I think remote offices were using them to get reports from other offices or corporate headquarters or whatever.  Sometimes, if you connected in the middle of the day, was able to log in and then starting trying to get/run commands, someone would pick up the phone or break the connection (once you typed enough).

I thought this was the most accurate hacking scene. I apologize for the terrible quality clip, it was the only one I could find.

Also, is hack-urate the appropriate terminology? I'm not in IT.

Probably my favorite hacking scene is the one in Mr. Robot where Trenton exploits an iPhone/Android argument to get Mobley to go to a "benchmark" site with a Stagefright malware payload the first time they meet. It was fun how they showed someone using social engineering to get a smart person to do a dumb thing with their phone and give them a way in.

I forget the movie but I loved the scene where the computer cracked the code one character at a time. That's exactly how I would do it.

The garbage in that scene is basically the same as in a turd by Dan Brown (Digital Fortress).
And that isn't even the most idiotic bit in that novel.

Working near DC, I used to get war dialed several times a year.  You could tell it was war dialing because the second line would light up right after the first.    Sometimes other phones on the floor started ringing as the auto-dialer went through consecutive numbers.

Well if the floating numbers were just visualisation to make it interesting it was a pretty valid scene of the time it takes to reverse engineer something and understand what the hell it's doing and speculate what it's future result will be from corrupted/incompete data. Specially back then. Other scenes in the movie though... Far more comical

thespindrifter: Some more hilariously awful garbage:
[iFrame https://www.youtube.com/embed/7UKUGZz5Hjw - 480x360]


This is actually semi-accurate.

But more related to phone phreaking than hacking. One of the guys who initially figured all that crap out could whistle into the phone to bypass long distance requirements and that sort of thing. I used to have a suite of programs that you would dial out through your computer's modem, the program would emulate those pitch signals, and then *desired effect* would occur.

For instance, if I knew there was a voice mail machine at my friends house, I could call his number and when the voice mail machine picked up, the program would push a tone that provided access to listen to the voice mails, even though the voice mail system didn't have a call in feature like they do today. Other ones just did simple shiat like obscure the number if the person you were calling had caller ID, or allow you to make long distance calls without being charged by your phone company. If I looked hard, I might STILL have those old programs on a floppy somewhere. Chances are they wouldn't work, and that's assuming I can find a system old enough to have a floppy in it.

A friend recommended it to me and I watched some of it on demand. I stopped when I heard it got canceled (and there's SO much good TV on right now), but I enjoyed what I saw.
