Hackfest 2020

Fireside Talk: Cheating in games
2020-11-21, 13:30–14:20, Hackfest - Sponsor room (and workshops)

This fireside talk will propose an open discussion from both an offensive and defensive perspective on the topic of Game Cheating. When i joined back the Entertainment industry from the Financial one, i found there's alot of similarities in both the motivation and techniques used.

Marc-André Bélanger will be joined by Manfred, a long term hacker of games, to discuss multiple aspect of cheating in games. From motivation to industrialisation of cheats.

A Vice article is available at: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/59p7qd/this-man-has-survived-by-hacking-mmo-online-games
Also his latest Blackhat talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOfroRgBgo0

I've selected offensive track, but this is both an offensive and defensive perspective on the issue.

Again this is a FireSide chat, we'll exchange on a series of topics as it relates to cheating.

Manfred made alot of money exploiting games over the years, his experience is really valuable to develop attacker profiles.

Marc-André is a long term security professional that worked in retail, banking and in the Entertainment industry. Also been a long term Hackfest attendee and speaker.

We all looking forward to this interesting Blue vs Red discussion
