Game Hacking

Attackers use automation software to make inauthentic requests in games

Attackers automate game mechanics to gain an unfair advantage over other players, and to obtain real-world financial rewards. Game Hacking is more than just a malicious way to steal others’ accounts; it represents a broad spectrum of automated techniques that intend to defraud other customers and the enterprise.

Game Hacking is also referred to as Macroing, Video Game Bots, Gold Farming, or Autoing.

Automation enables attackers to subvert game mechanics and gain unfair advantages

Arkose Labs identify when attackers are using bots and macros, or attempt to circumvent authentication. Such abuse is intercepted by Arkose Labs’ Enforcement, a challenge–response mechanism that cannot be bypassed. This proprietary method of secondary screening blends seamlessly with gameplay and ensures that humans are never blocked.
