Hi all, 

Seen Matrix Reloaded today. A funny thing:-
In the movie Trinity used nmap to find a vulnerable SSH server, and then
exploited it using the SSH1 CRC32 exploit which was discovered in 2001.

In the first movie, the world was in 1999. In the second movie Morpheus
mentioned how Neo has "freed more minds in the past six months than the
past six years".

So Trinity is actually using an exploit discovered in 2001, in a the
simulated world that can be no later than June 2000. :-)
