What is the issue?
The gaming industry is flourishing with millions of players all over the globe. Online gaming is big business, revenues are at an all-time high and fraudsters want their piece of the pie.
Users are obsessed with their digital personalities and the growth of their characters, are emotionally attached to their digital alter ego, and are willing to spend big money on it. This phenomenon of modern age gaming allows for the creation of numerous market places where luxurious accounts, skins, virtual currencies and other in-game features are products in high demand.
Identity theft and account takeover are affecting the industry. Let’s take web-injects for example. Players follow web-links and fill-in their digital account information to receive in-game currency, and fraudsters simply harvest the gathered data to take over players’ accounts.
