Cyrex couldn’t wait to get our hands on this game and conduct a series of tests under our Grey Box penetration testing service.
The testing was focused to ensure the validity of the server-side security controls and the performance of both the game and the server infrastructure. We did this by ethically hacking a variety of functionalities such as:
- Matchmaking system
- World creation tools
- Party management systems
- Creation and registration of player accounts
- Session management and authentication
- Physics (meaning player movement and attacking)
- In-game achievement and rewards
We uncovered a variety of vulnerabilities across several services as a result of our testing. The developers identified several of them critical to high-level vulnerabilities, and we were able to secure them after our tests. Once concluded, the team at Flying Wild Hog were happy with our services, and we conducted a thorough set of sanity and regression tests once we finished testing.
“We found out that there are two benefits of cooperating with Cyrex – the quality of their work and the quality of cooperation with the team. Space Punks’ audit was thorough and gave us confidence in the security and scalability of the game. The way the team operates is a showcase of great balance between structure and flexibility.”
