I remember seeing a movie when in the late 90s on basic television that was about some sort of AI or computer virus that was taking over. It may have been hurting/killing people via their monitors somehow.
The only scene I really remember is that there was this stereotypical, fat, dirty, hacker guy they tried to go to for help. The reason they went to him, aside from his supposedly mythical hacking abilities, was that he was so good he didn't need to use a monitor. The protagonists reasoned this would make him immune from attack by the AI/virus. Unfortunately, the AI/virus figured out he didn't have a monitor and sent an electric shock through his keyboard that killed him.
Unfortunately, that's all I can remember of the movie.
