Gaming: The next big target of cybercrime
The gaming industry is a growing threat vector for security breaches. Most gaming companies tend to be worried about authentication friction, and are under pressure to deliver games at faster pace to maintain their market share in an increasingly competitive business environment. This can lead to a wide range of vulnerabilities and security issues, perhaps more so than in other industries, for attackers to exploit.
As mobile gaming is becoming increasingly connected, sophisticated attacks are rising at an alarming rate and show no signs of stopping.
Cheating and tampering is becoming a big problem
By employing the same reverse engineering techniques that are compromising banking and finance apps, attackers can take over accounts, steal personal credentials, and/or get unwanted access to related payment accounts or winnings. These are similar cyber threats to those the financial industry is facing.
Cheaters are willing to pay a massive amount of money for hacks that allow a player to rack up major win statistics, steal in-game virtual winnings and being the champion in gaming communities. A hacker’s success can sink the chances of a game publisher striking a mega-hit, or even force a gaming company to write off a total product failure. Either of those scenarios mean financial disaster.
