* Irregularities with voting machines in the 2006 American election were blamed on [=McAfee=] anti-virus software by the company that made them. Why voting machines would ''need'' anti-virus software - or to be hooked up to the internet at all -is a troubling concept, as [[http://xkcd.com/463/ this XKCD cartoon points out]].

* A frequently DefiedTrope for the Wiki/SCPFoundation. Any SCP that is an artificially intelligent computer programs must never be run on a computer with any kind of network connection. Most of the Foundation's own site equipment is on its own network separate from the main Internet, and those few computers that ''do'' have Internet access are extremely tightly monitored and controlled, with even the bases' own staff having highly limited rights to access them.

A [[TheCracker Cracker]] or PlayfulHacker can cause unlimited harm/mischief in the TV world because any computer, or any device with a CPU as a component--or even with a few strands of copper wire in it--is connected to the Internet and thus becomes easily accessible and subvertible to the character's hacking skill. Everything from NORAD to [[HackTheTrafficLights traffic lights]] the engine computer on your SUV can be tampered with and shut down from a laptop in a room thousands of miles away. This openly defies the fact that in ''neither'' case are said computers actually ''online'' in a way that is reachable by someone on a modem.

* In ''Literature/TheScarecrow'', Carver the SerialKiller bad guy is head of security at a server farm, and thus can go pretty much anywhere he wants on the Internet. He sets up a trap site to let him know that he's being investigated, and then uses his all-access Internet pass to cut IntrepidReporter good guy Jack [=McEvoy=] off from the world--emptying Jack's bank account, canceling his credit cards, canceling his phone service, cutting off his email access. This is all part of a plot to isolate and murder Jack.
