netwars: The Code. Episode 4 of 6.
- Hackers. Cyber warfare. Terrorism. Forget Edward Snowden and the NSA. Do you really know who's monitoring your data?
-- Welcome to the Deep Web. Who needs tanks and guns when death is just a click away.
-- In the aftermath of an explosion at Drax Power Station, all evidence points to the National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU). Agent David Roche and Rebecca MacDonald of PrinceSec, who were investigating at the power plant, have disappeared. Scott Mitchell knows that hacker group Black Flag must be to blame for the attack. He suspects his old enemy Nightshade. But how can he and his NCCU colleagues prove it? Could the attack be a decoy to move attention from what Black Flag is actually planning elsewhere? And what the hell happened to Agent Roche and Rebecca?
