Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Trying to remember a movie plot

Can anyone remember a movie plot (or TV show?) where some people break into a facility with a computer virus to load into a super computer to stop it taking over the world (as they tend to do) only to upload it and realize the virus actually triggered the super computer into action. :shock:
