Griffin Trailer Released.

February 10th, 2010 by Jarmo Puskala

Trailer for the Wreckamovie developed cybercrime series Griffin has been released. The trailer was lauched at F-Secure’s SPECIES conference in Vienna and F-Secure is also supporting the Griffin series by giving its insight into the fight against cybercrime.

Good hacker films are still hard to come by. Hollywood makes some lovingly crafted films about gamblers and conmen, but if the con uses computers they usually freak out and decide it absolutely can not be interesting unless they put in explosions and completely make up how computers work. Often this creation of non-existent technologies is to make it all more “accessible” to the average viewer.

The funny thing is that the “average viewer” is not going to blow up military bases by hand-coding a blowfish-encrypted, 3D-accelerated supervirus – but he is the target of the real world cybercrime. And there are enough stories about real cybercrime to fill a terabyte hd with films and tv-shows. Just ask F-Secure’s Mikko Hyppönen for some war stories. Timo did when they first met some years ago and I know he still has several story ideas about cybercrime he wants to do.

So you guessed it, Griffin is inspired by the real stories. And developed by people who use the real internet and Wreckamovie.com. Or as the press release puts it:

Griffin is a made-for-Internet TV series of fictional episodes about online crime, developed by a web community of enthusiasts on the Wreckamovie platform, in co-operation with Internet operators.

The six-part series tells the story of Griffin Sharp, a good guy with a complex past in the world of cybercrime. Each Griffin episode takes place in a different country, and will be produced by local start-up crews and volunteering enthusiasts. F-Secure and the Wreckamovie community are inviting major Internet operators for partnership in this innovative project, which will bring the drama of the fight against cybercrime to millions of people worldwide. This approach will also help consumers understand modern IT threats in a better way.

Anyone can join the Griffin community and be part of creating the story at www.wreckamovie.com/griffin. To watch the trailer, go to www.youtube.com/FSecureNews. The Griffin series will be distributed free of charge on the Internet.
