I don't know how much cross-over there is for the sla.ckers and gaming, but I thought this was really cool.

Any of you consultants lurking?

That's cool, I've been hired to test security for games, but never to show them how to make hacking realistic. I bet they get bored fast...

Hardware hacking is probably more realistic for a game, lockpicking/rewiring, etc.

I think it's not so much realism in the literal sense, so much as using proper terminology, "no no, that doesn't even work like that", sort of stuff.

Lockpicking and other hardware hacks are never really portrayed realistically either...

The proper terminology is probably too boring for the most part, though one can hope.. And though I agree hardware hacking is often portrayed unrealistically, I think it has a far higher chance of being closer to reality than hacking a website.
