Breach Intro Sequence

Rippers use a black-market version of NSN to enter a 3D representation of a server's subnet cloud. Replacing the need for cracking complex computer code, the intuitive interface of the NSN virtual reality world made hacking accessible to anyone. As a result, Rippers emerged in great numbers.[1]

According to ShadowChild, Rippers work to hack corporate servers to expose truths that the elites hide from the masses.
