Roosevelt Collection Shops Announce Boxed Experience

The interactive Boxed Experience is set to open in the Roosevelt Collection shops from August 14 – September 30.

Roosevelt Collection Shops is thrilled to announce Boxed Experience, the latest activation soon to open within their new exhibit space, 150 West. Opening August 14 and running through September 30, the interactive theatrical experience will amaze visitors through map projections and hyper-realistic rooms as guests investigate and decide the fate of a man being accused of a horrible crime. In each room, clues and evidence will alter thoughts on guilt and innocence through intriguing visuals, mind-bending sensories, and a storyline that will leave attendees speechless. Tickets range from $35-55.

 

“We are always searching for cutting edge activations to engage and entertain our visitors,” said Shannon Ridgeway, General Manager at Roosevelt Collection Shops. “Boxed Experience will be a one-of-a-kind way to dig deep into social issues and raise our collective consciousness in an interactive, fun way as a community.”

 

Live actors will bring characters in the story to life, interacting with guests along the way. Created to shed light on the various barriers among different cultures, ethnicities, and social issues, the exhibit aims to shift mindsets and take visitors’ thought patterns to new heights.

Luxottica Hacked

By Justin Lyons

According to Italian press sources, Luxottica was the victim of a cyberattack Saturday.

Luxottica owns eyewear brands like Oakley, Ray-Ban, Coach, Chanel and Versace as well as retail brands like LensCrafters, Sunglass Hut and Target Optical. It is the largest eyewear company in the world with more than 80,000 employees.

SecurityOpenLab, an Italian cybersecurity site, said its sources confirmed Luxottica offices suffered a complete system failure due to ransomware attacks, shutting down operations in Italy and China

SecurityOpenLab also said union sources confirmed that workers received an SMS message saying the second shift on Sept. 21 had been suspended.

Users began reporting an inability to reach sites for LensCrafters, Sunglass Hut, Ray-Ban and other Luxottica brands on Saturday. It was also reported that One Luxottica, a user portal for the company, was down, but it appears to be up again at the time of writing.

BleepingComputer spoke to Bad Packets, a cybersecurity firm, who told them Luxottica used a Citrix ADX controller device, which is vulnerable to CVE-2019-19781, a flaw in Citrix devices.

This flaw is exploited by ransomware actors as it provides network access and credentials used to deeper infiltrate a network.

Luxottica took the servers to its eyewear brand websites offline. While websites for Oakley, Ray-Ban, Coach and more are accessible now, a manager at LensCrafters storefront told 360 MAGAZINE that the Ciao operating system crashed Saturday and that they still have little to no ability to process insurance or complete transactions.

Though Luxottica has not made a public statement, the same source told 360 MAGAZINE that IT support was unavailable while systems were down. LensCrafters is currently logging orders for a later date when systems are back up.

360 was also told that LensCrafters will offer 50% off frames and lenses for the inconvenience to customers.
