Seldomly Asked Questions: Bane Takeover

How does the operator miss the fact that Smith copies over Bane before Bane jacks out?

Remember at the beginning of M2, Link comments that "the code got all weird", indicating that Smith can encrypt the Matrix code around him and hide himself and his actions from any operator watching. Chances are, the operator noticed something strange before the phone started ringing, and if they had asked Bane-Smith any questions, he would have assured them that everything is fine.

Remember that Neo says "impossible" when he first realizes who Bane-Smith really is, so the last thing Bane's crewmates would ever suspect is that Bane's consciousness was overwritten by an exiled agent.
