In episode one, we visited the town Râmnicu Vâlcea, which is better known as "Hackerville." In the first film, we met hackers from all walks of life, including white, grey and black hat hackers, and talked to them about their motivations behind what they do.

In the second installment, we travel all corners of the globe to find out where cybercrime goes to hide, by exploring what is called Bulletproof Hosting. While the hacker is the operator of the attack, bulletproof hosting is where attackers stash their malware, store their tools and even execute attacks through these servers.
