Previously on netwars 2 — Down Time

The NCCU’s investigation into the MalCom threat against the financial industry takes another twist when they receive a call from the Head of Security at high-frequency trading firm, Desai Group, informing them of a large-scale attack on their essential servers. The company was disabled for over an hour at the start of trading, by a ransomware attack on their servers, encrypting all of their data, and crucially, gaining access to all of the secret algorithms which run their trades.

Rebecca and the team know immediately that the attack is connected to MalCom, but how does it tie to The Water Boys and their mysterious deaths? Their only lead is the character, Shylock, who founded The Water Boys, and is the one who has shut the group down now. Shylock has gone silent online, but was the lead instigator of the group’s attacking stance.

Meanwhile, Shylock has actually been right under their noses, posing as Agent Stacy, after killing the real FBI agent before he even boarded his London-bound plane. Mitchell figures out Stacy’s identity moments too late to catch him. They soon realise that Shylock has poisoned Rebecca with the same Aconite he has been using to kill The Water Boys.

As Rebecca is rushed to hospital, and a team is gathered to help the ailing financial company wade through their corrupted machines, Mitchell heads into the Dark Web to find out Shylock really is.

None of their efforts are in time to stop Shylock from striking again, this time at the home of one of The Water Boys, killing him as he tries to flee. Shylock is beginning to enjoy his murderous role, and for now, he knows more about the NCCU than they know about him.

Mitchell pressed the panic button as soon as Rebeccas monitors woke him up with their screamed warnings. The emergency medical team rushed in immediately and ushered him out into the hallway to wait while they treated her. Moments later they burst back out of the ward again with her bed rolling quickly ahead of them, and the whole entourage disappeared through a swinging set of doors, leaving Mitchell alone in the dimly lit ward. He looked around, feeling lost. A new nurse had come on duty and she stared at him with a slightly less sour expression than her predecessor.
