This film came out on 19 June 2006, so it is a little old but has one, two or
three interesting things:
Title: Hacker Apocalypse
Running time: 67 minutes
Written by: Li Feng (Who also wrote Hero)
Backed by: The famous Beijing amatuer film organization BAERXIU Movie Club
Plot: Tieke, the proprietor of a computer company, is also the brains behind a secret hacker organization. He accepts a large sum of money from an unnamed organization to make preparations for a large-scale invasion campaign on the Japanese network using a virus he created called “The broken-hearted rose.”
The movie was not well received by some hackers and DVD fans…they hacked the movie’s website twice.
There was a TV show in 2002 on CCTV6 called the Rose hacker.
There is also a real Chinese Rose virus/trojan (rose.exe). Jingtian talks a little about on the Kaspersky forum here.
Of course the most famous Chinese hacker Rose, the Withered.
Why all this? Not sure, but started to see a lot of refs in Chinese to
rose hacker/virus this or that and now you have too.
