JACK: Imagine being at work in the office and all of a sudden the server you’re working on goes down, the phones stop working, the screens go blank, and as you investigate you realize the company has been hacked. [MUSIC] The virus is so bad and it’s spreading so fast that you frantically start unplugging Ethernet cables in an attempt to stop the attack. You’re forced to sever your connection to the internet altogether. Yeah, that did happen and I want to tell you about it.
