On October 13th, 7:30pm ET, the hacker group known as DedSec launched a live hack operation on HAUM Electronic Inc.’s smart home demo, located in Toronto, Canada.
Ubisoft Canada selected Canadian fans to participate in the tour of this cutting-edge smart home as a promotional stunt for the upcoming release of Watch Dogs 2.
Unbeknownst to the visitors, this operation was broadcast live on Ubisoft Canada’s Facebook & YouTube channels simultaneously and invited viewers to decide how DedSec would hack the smart home.
This was the climax of DedSec’s campaign against HAUM in Canada.
