A most dangerous doc

Anti-virus company Norton profiles hackers in a short film.

It might be better known for those pop-ups telling you your computer’s unprotected, but computer security company Norton is upping its content game.

The 20-minute doc, Most Dangerous Town, tells the story of Râmnicu Vâlcea, Romania, often called “Hackerville.”

The film, led out of the U.S. as part of a global campaign, profiles convicted hackers and hopes it can get people talking about cybercrime and remind them to protect themselves.

Probably more effective than those pop-ups.
