Old School IBM Hacker Ad

This IBM ad was one of the first information security ads on TV. It is almost quaint after a few years of its original use in 1999?, 2000?. I dig the speed this guy "gets in", finds what he's looking for, and then emails it to the whole company. He must know some sweet keyboard short-cuts. It's unclear if these two are insiders or outsiders, but the bit does get the point across that information is accessible, important, and moves fast. More IBM ads.
