Alex Gibney’s Zero Days is a documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules—the world of cyberwar.
The film tells the story of Stuxnet, self-replicating computer malware (known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own) that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. It’s the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyberwarfare.
Zero Days is a cautionary tale of technology, power, unintended consequences, morality, and the dangers of secrecy.
Followed by a panel discussion with the Guardian's Head of Documentaries, Charlie Phillips alongside Eric Chien and Liam O'Murchu from Symantec, a cyber security company.
Eric Chien is technical director of Symantec’s Security Response division leading a deep analysis team of engineers that investigate high-impact Internet security threats and was one of the lead authors of Symantec’s groundbreaking research on the revolutionary Stuxnet malware.
Liam O’Murchu is Senior Manager, Development, Symantec Security Response.
