Discover the World of Bulletproof Hosting in Norton's Cybercrime Documentary

Editor's Pick

Online security software brand Norton by Symantec explores the secretive, dark world of bulletproof web hosting in the second in a series of documentaries themed "The Most Dangeous Town on the Internet."

Last year, the company released a documentary about hackers in Romania and now it has followed that with a 20-minute episode, titled "Where Cybercrime Goes to Hide." The film, stylishly directed by Daniel Junge of HeLo, for Grey San Francisco, takes you inside a nuclear bunker in Holland, as well as the deepy odd "Sealand" offshore platform off the coast of the U.K., and from the White Mountains in Sweden to the streets of Southeast Asia. It makes for fascinating viewing -- and presumably the hopes is that viewers will be so terrified by the threats that lie within these services, like botnets, malware and ransomware, that they'll upgrade their anti-virus software now.
