Leslie Neilsen hacks into computer using Login: Login, and Password: Password

News: With the social media trends on the timing of comedy genius Leslie Neilsen's death we thought it appropriate to share this from his epic movie Wrongfully Accused

By Sam

The viral twitter and facebook frenzy unleashed by mention of the death of comedy great Leslie Neilsen, star of Police Squad, and the Airplane and The Naked Gun movies would be excuse enough to run the picture above.

In this scene from his 1998 movie Wrongfully Accused, Neilsen plays an international violinist wrongly accused of murder who must clear his name after he "is framed for murder and must prove himself innocent by finding a mysterious one-eyed, one-armed, one-legged man after escaping from a bus accident on the way to jail."

In this pivotial scene he is seen logging into a hospital computer using the Login: Login and the Password: Password.

We also offer this as a reminder to readers to keep your systems secure with strong passwords as we can think of at least one movie maker who may have failed to do this!
