Trivia: When MGM/UA set up a website for Hackers, it was like dangling candy in front of a child. Soon after the site was established, it was hacked! A group calling itself the Internet Liberation Front managed to 'doodle' all over the photograph of Hackers stars Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller, and replaced verbiage, 'this is going to be an entertaining, fun promotional site for a movie,' with 'this is going to be a lame, cheesy promotional site for a movie!' The studio decided to maintain the site during the theatrical run of the movie in its altered form."
Trivia: Emmanuel "Cereal Killer" Goldstein is named after Eric Emmanual Goldstein Corley, editor of 2600 Magazine: The Hacker Quarterly.
Trivia: Ramon, a.k.a. Phantom Phreak takes his name from a combination of several items/people. Phreaking is the term for hacking phone lines. Also, Phantom Phreak refers to himself as "The King of NYNEX" when he introduces himself to Dade, a reference to the telephone company which served the New York City area at the time the movie was produced. His name is also a reference to "Nynex Phreak," a member of the Masters of Deception, a New York-based hacker group. This is also the joke when Joey suggests the Master of Disaster as his handle.
