"Nuking the fridge" refers to the moment in a film series when it becomes apparent that a certain installment is not as good as previous installments, due to ridiculous or low quality storylines, events, or characters.

Originating from the film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," Harrison Ford's character survives a nuclear detonation by getting into a lead-lined fridge before being blown thousands of feet only to crash back down and emerge safely.

The absurdity in this occurrence is that, although lead is radiation proof, lead melts at 620°F and is not resistant to the millions of degrees, that say, an atomic bomb would put out. This is the prime example of the lower quality and outlandishness disgorged as a continuation of the series, and thus the phrase was coined.

The saying is also a reference to the phrase "jump the shark," referring to an episode of Happy Days where the Fonz jumped a shark on water skis, considered the lowest point of the show. "Jumping the shark" is applied to a television series alternatively to film.
"Star Wars really nuked the fridge when Jar Jar Binks was introduced."

"Indiana Jones 4 nuked the fridge when they nuked the fridge."

The manifesto anti-security group that "hacked" ImageShack on 7-11-09, where they overlaid their purpose in every image hosted on the site.

Their motive is to eliminate websites that sell security. Initially, it appears they are anti-fraudulent security, such as websites that claim your computer has a virus, or actually puts a virus on your computer so you will use their own service to clear them, but they are against sale of security in any form.

"Anti-sec.

We're a movement dedicated to the eradication of full-disclosure. We wanted to give everyone an image of what we're all about.

Full-disclosure is the disclosure of exploits publicly - anywhere. The security industry uses full-disclosure to profit and develops scare-tactics to convince people into buying their firewalls, anti-virus software, and auditing services.

Meanwhile, script kiddies copy and paste these exploits and compile them, ready to strike any and all vulnerable servers they can get a hold of. If whitehats were truly about security this stuff would not be published, not even exploits with silly edits to make them slightly unusable.

As an added bonus, if publication wasn't enough, these exploits are mirrored and distributed widely across the Internet with a nice little advertisement embedded in them for the crew or website which first exposed the vulnerability to the public.

It's about money. While the world is difficult to change, and money will certainly continue to be a very important in the eyes of many, our battle is that of the removal of full-disclosure for the purpose of making it harder for the security industry to exploit its
consequences.

It is our goal that, through mayhem and the destruction of all exploitive and detrimental communities, companies, and individuals, full-disclosure will be abandoned and the security industry will be forced to reform.

How do we plan to achieve this? Through the full and unrelenting, unmerciful elimination of all supporters of full-disclosure and the security industry in its present form. If you own a security blog, an exploit publication website or you distribute any exploits... "you are a target and you will be rm'd. Only a matter of time."

This isn't like before. This time everyone and everything is getting owned.

Verb. A cat-like attack, ie: When someone sporadically runs up/pounces someone, then casually walks away.

Similar to the hugtackle, just more crafty.
"She cattacked me on the way to the kitchen!"

Originating from the film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" where Harrison Ford's character survives a nuclear detonation by getting into a fridge, and is then blown hundreds of feet, only to hit the ground, and then emerges safely.

The absurdity of this event in the film to be the best example of the lower quality of this installment in the series, and thus the phrase was coined.

The phrase is also a reference to the phrase "jump the shark", which has the same meaning, only applied to a television series instead of a film series.

"Star Wars really nuked the fridge when Jar Jar Binks was introduced."

"Indiana Jones 4 nuked the fridge when they nuked the fridge."
