The Multibillion Dollar Industry That's Ignored
Jason Montgomery and Ryan Sevey
Derbycon 2014

Video games are something that a lot of us enjoy playing to escape the realities of the world- and to just relax and have fun. What’s unknown to many gamers who work hard to up their skills- they often are losing to cheaters who can dominate them with low skills by subscribing to a ~$10 a month cheat service (which often requires disabling UAC, DEP, and AV).This talk will examine some of the security issues facing the gaming industry and the cheating marketplace, and will include a deep dive into how game “hacks” such as aimbots and extrasensory perception (ESP) work in current gaming engines. We’ll explore current anti-cheat technologies and techniques attackers use to easily bypass them, as well as how the cheats themselves are protected from being discovered. Finally we conclude with proposing new anti-cheat techniques including Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence giving the legit gamers an enjoyable experience again.
