Originally released as a motion picture in 2016, this 114-minute documentary shows you a possible devastating ciber warfare.
Besides Stuxnet, a malicious computer worm, there exists a much more gigantic thingamajig called "Nitro Zeus", which is a project name for a well funded comprehensive cyber attack plan created as a mitigation strategy after the Stuxnet malware campaign and its aftermath.
Unlike Stuxnet, that was loaded onto a system after the design phase to affect its proper operation, Nitro Zeus lets a malware sneak into a system during the design phase unbeknownst to the system users.
This builtin feature allows a more assured and effective cyber attack against the system's users.
This scary documentary will tell you that we're unknowingly exposed to the risk of a full-scale cyber war.

One of Gibney's best works! This is the future and we are just living in it

I wasn't that crazy about Gibney's Wikileaks documentary, but ZERO DAYS is much better. A dissection of the Stuxnet malware designed and unleashed by the United States and Israel to sabotage Iran's nuclear program, Gibney's assessment is that the Israelis got pushy. Now Pandora's box has been opened and it is only a matter of time before something much worse happens than some centrifuges spinning out of control.

Overall, this can be seen as a reasonable assessment of the events, and agencies, that led to the creation of the Stuxnet computer virus. If you don't know background details yourself.

If you do, it's a bit annoying. On the technical side, the filmmakers have only talked to Symantec and Kaspersky, and Eugene doesn't get much screen time. In fact, many researchers from many companies contributed to the overall study of Stuxnet, and some facts and implications were known much more quickly than is implied by the film.

In regard to the government, military, and intelligence personnel interviewed (and, again, they take up much more time than is given to the techies) if you pay careful attention to the dates of service given in the film itself, you will see that people who claim to have been involved were not in the right agencies at the right time.

As stated above, the film doesn't really misrepresent the situation (although the tone does get a bit ominous towards the end). Still, it would have been nice had they done a bit more research first.

This documentary is a disturbing and exceptional investigation. There is plenty to think about how cybertech is changing the landscape of the world. Very few people know how much goes on in secret and this documentary brings it to our attention. In a world so full of distractions it's easy to see how this can go on without many knowing about it.
