Hackers attending next month's Hack in the Box conference in Kuala Lumpur are pitching in to raise funds for the Malaysian National Cancer Council.

Conference organizers plan to screen two indie films celebrating the hacker culture -- Freedom Downtime and Urchin -- and donate all the proceeds to cancer research. It will be the first time these movies are filmed in the Asia Pacific region.

Freedom Downtime, directed by Emmanuel Goldstein, is a documentary sympathetic to convicted hacker Kevin Mitnick.
