A couple of years ago, somebody thought it would be a great idea to do a sequel to classic flick Wargames by updating it to be about social media and terrorism. Why does Hollywood want to hurt us so?

The story is about some hackers who discover this online game called RIPLEY that is actually some kind of nebulously-defined terrorist-locating device that has the ability to do things like shut down the electrical grid and send out UAVs to downtown Philadelphia just cuz. In this amazing scene, our hero has to (you guessed it) beat RIPLEY at her own game! Which somehow involves playing the Stargate MMO and launching DOS attacks. Also, IP addresses are involved. Whoa!
