Web Warriors, a CBC documentary, begins by speculating the link between the release of Blaster worm and massive power blackouts that occurred shortly after. Following this assumption, the documentary explores how computer viruses can be used to disrupt national infrastructures. After a brief coverage of Defcon conference, there is an interview with MafiaBoy. Next there is an interesting twist, where we follow Donnie "a career hacker" trying and ultimately failing to track down the programmer behind the Microsoft Word virus (Sobig) in Moscow, Russia. The documentary concludes by discussing the threat of information warfare coming from Russia and China.
