Die Hard 2007

Dark screen Unix terminals. Check. Computer viruses planted to explode a computer. Check. Hacking done in a few seconds. Check. It is in this movie that the term "Fire Sale" in cyberwarfare is introduced, a three-stage systematic attack on infrastructure. Fire Sale because everything must go. The order is a bit strange: Stage 1: transportation, Stage 2: Financial system and Stage 3: Utility systems. An other interpretation gives an other order:
Financial Infrastructure Resources Environment
There is a bit of musing about this in the (much more intellectual) movie "Travelling Salesmen": you don't want to take the utility system down first because then you can no more hack them. That is why this goes last.
