I have a Network Engineering background, so I siezed the opportunity to sit down with Watch Dogs Brand Content Director and go-to hacking liaison Thomas Geffroyd on a deep dive on hacking both in the game and the real world. We talk NESSUS, NMAP, script kiddies, Kapersky, personal data mining and misuse, precrime prediction, and far more. We even took a few minutes to talk about hacking in the game!
Also embedded in our interview is some brand new footage of the game in motion. What about you? Are you security conscious with your information?
Watch Dogs is releasing on May 27th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with the Wii U following in the fall.
