Network manipulation on video games. - Alex Kot (Circle City Con 2017 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Network manipulation on video games.
Alex Kot

Circle City Con 2017

I will go over common misnomers of online cheating methods. Explain the realistic side of why Peer to Peer games can be broken. I will showcase a method I PoC 5 years ago, yet I haven't seen this type of manipulation displayed online (video demo). I will also describe the benefit of dedicated servers or "Cloud" games. The reason I want to discuss these concepts is due to most FPS are moving from P2P to Cloud which mitigate most of these attacks. At the end will bring up a funny story of social engineering some person on XBL to have him apologize for threatening people.

Currently work as a Security Engineer in a payment processing company in Atlanta. A video gamer who enjoys FPS on Xbox. Used to be big into console hacking. Hobbyist of SOHO router firmware and wireless technologies. I spoke BsidesHuntsville, Notacon, and BsidesCleveland.
