Abstract

Online game security is a newly emerging research area that is attracting considerable attention with the growth of the online game industry. There is an increasing need for online game service providers to detect and prevent the various threats associated with game bots and gold farmers. These illegal activities have become quite severe, and many online game service providers have fallen prey to them. These threats exist in popular multiplayer games where cyber assets can be monetized. In this study, we survey academic research efforts and industry practices related to these threats. In addition, we examine the actual illegal activities and look at countermeasures being adopted in the field.
