Domo Arigato, Mr. Robot | Fortinet Blog

I just finished watching the first episode of Mr. Robot, the new show on USA Network about “a cyber-security engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night...recruited by a mysterious underground group to destroy the firm he's paid to protect”. Let’s just get this out of the way upfront: It’s a great show.
It’s good television in its own right, but the real genius is in the way it doesn’t bother dumbing down the geek-speak for the sake of viewers who aren’t nerds looking for something to fill the void left by the season finale of Game of Thrones. There’s rootkits (I won’t tell you how one of the engineers explained the concept of a rootkit to a less savvy colleague), Tor, encryption, shots of command lines with actual recognizable commands, Gnome vs. KDE references, and all sorts of other goodies that will make the technorati feel right at home.
