This question tries to put you in the right frame of mind for the human element of computer security.

Please select any non-computer science book or movie that takes a point of view and twists it unexpectedly. The twist may be an invalidation of an assumption, exploiting a weakness in a system, an unusual view of a situation that reveals something previously unknown, or that shows the situation is not as it seems. Then, write at most 1 page about the twist and how it relates to the assumptions that characters in the book or movie (or the readers or viewers) make, as well as how the twist illustrates the (mis)placement of trust.

Please use proper English when writing your paragraphs, and write clearly. Remember that we may not have read the book or seen the movie, so review as much as necessary for us to understand the nature of the twist.
