The fake attack on the Ubisoft Montreal studio last November 2020 was orchestrated by a Rainbow Six Siege cheater. This is revealed in an article in the Canadian newspaper La Presse.
The fake attack on the software house was the subject of in-depth investigations by the police. From the documents examined by the newspaper La Presse it would appear a phone call warning of an attack in progress with five men who had taken 40 employees hostage and who would have blown everything up, if they hadn’t received $ 2 million as a ransom.
The report also reports that the cheater continued to haunt the company with phone calls. In December there was a false report of a bomb sighting near the internal nursery of the development offices. While, in January, he reported the head injury of an employee following another hostage-taking. In both cases, the police moved with much more discretion.
The subject, evidently, not happy with what he had already done, tried to get the credentials of a Rainbow Six Siege designer and failed in the enterprise, falling back in requesting the keys to be able to ban users from the game.
The subject in question, it seems to have been identified in the person of Yanni Ouahioune, a French citizen, who has been banned from Rainbow Six about 80 times. Known under the nicknames “Yannox keyboard” e “Y4nn0XX“Gave an interview to La Presse saying:”I have not done anything. I just cheated in their video games. The only time I called Ubisoft was to insult them for banning me [dal gioco Rainbow Six]“.
The cheater problem is taking on devastating contours. The latest news on their nefarious activities have also invested Call of Duty Warzone. The Director of the game, Amos Hodge, exasperated, issued a series of fiery statements in this regard.
