Gaming industry websites are tempting target for cybercriminals. Morover, the number of attacks is still increasing. According to research report conducted by Akamai titled Web Attacks and Gaming Abuse, Gaming Industry being a privileged field for hackers with 12 billion attacks and still growing.
“The gaming industry alone saw 12 billion of those attacks, marking it as a growing target for criminals looking to make a quick buck. For now, attackers see credential abuse as a low-risk venture with potential for a high payout, and these types of attacks are likely to increase for the foreseeable future.” (p. 1)
The most widely used method is SQL injection. With this method, hackers or criminals might access a gaming company’s database and steal the confidential data, such as games materials, gamers ID, transaction data, including credit card numbers, etc.
“We didn’t forget about web attack data. When we look at web attack data historically observed by Akamai, 89.9% of the attacks fall into one of two categories: SQL Injections (SQLi) and Local File Inclusion (LFI) attacks. The data over this same 17-month period shows that SQLi have continued to grow at an alarming rate as an attack vector.” (p. 1)
A large number of gamers who spend money to buy in-game items such as diamonds, weapons, heroes, etc. That is one of reasons why gaming industry become tempting target for cybercriminals.
“Part of the reason why gaming is so lucrative is the trend of adding easily commoditized items for gamers to consume, such as cosmetic enhancements, special weapons, or other related items. Furthermore, gamers are a niche demographic known for spending money, so their financial status is also a tempting target.” (p. 13)
