Web Warriors offers an unprecedented glimpse into the world's newest and most vulnerable frontier: cyberspace. The film takes us into the world of hackers like Mafia Boy - a 15-year-old high school student who rose to infamy in 2000 by causing millions of dollars in damage after single-handedly shutting down internet giants - including Yahoo, Amazon, eBay, Dell, eTrade, and CNN. We meet Donnie who goes on a journey into the Russian cyber underground searching for the creators of a computer virus with the hopes of collecting the $250,000 reward being offered by Microsoft.
