CNN used a screen shot from a video game in their recent news report about Russian hacking allegations. CNN used a screenshot from the video game ‘Fallout 4’ to show how Russians hack things.

In a recent story about President Obama proposing sanctions against Russia for its roll in cyberattacks targeting the United States, CNN grabbed a screenshot of the hacking mini-game from the extremely popular RPG Fallout 4. First spotted by Reddit, the screenshot shows the menacing neon green letters that gamers will instantly recognize as being from the game.
