The first episode of this web advertising series can be found here, Slater plays a hacker infiltrating business computers via mail room printers to find “the info I’m looking for.”

    This ad appears a few weeks after someone claimed to have hacked 150,000 printers to raise awareness of the vulnerabilities of online printers without security protection. According to recent studies, 80% of French companies were hacked in 2015. And 2016 is considered the most profitable cyber-crime year ever.
