    WarGames, 1983.

    The scenes showing a computer dialing every number in Sunnyvale led to the term “war dialing”, and indirectly to the newer term “wardriving.

    War Dialing
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_dialing

    The scenes showing Lightman’s computer dialing every number in Sunnyvale led to the term “war dialing”, a technique of using a modem to scan a list of telephone numbers to search for unknown computers, and indirectly to the newer term “wardriving.”
