There's a pretty hilarious American police
procedural TV show in 2015
called "CSI: Cyber", featuring mostly cybercrime. Obviously they have to
dredge up snippets of code from places for screenshots on the show.
Episode 4 happened to include a tidbit from MediaWiki 1.25/wmf3. Supposedly
the code was a hack to make your printer blow up.
I spotted another one of these: Criminal Minds, "The Hunt", at timestamp
26:10 on Netflix. Apparently the NewPP limit report is part of the login
process for some underground girl-auctioning site.
