PAX Prime 2013 – The Worst of the Worst: Hacking, Exploitation, and Abuse within Online Games

Online games provide us with endless entertainment and are an amazing way to meet and connect with people across the world. However, like all media, there is a dark underworld beneath online games: the hacking of game clients or servers, malware attacks, the exploitation of game mechanics, and the abuse of fellow players. For an hour, Alex will tell the stories that don’t get told about online games, from abuse by employees to game mechanic scripting, personal threats to payment disputes. We will also delve into what both players and developers can do to discourage the abuse of their favorite online games.

Panelist: Alex Engel [Founder, Website]
