Hello Gilles,

Are you talking about "war games" (http://www.pulltheplug.org/wargames/index.html)?

In this case, I dont think this kind of games are the real threat... this games are used to increase security/hacking knowledge... (also usefull for pen-testers and security analysts). IMHO the threat is not the game itself is the bad use of the acquired knowledge. In this way everyone should remove any hacking related paper from the net ... for "deleting the threat"

regards

Subject: internet online game hacking ?

Hello,

I am trying to know if Internet game hacking (online games) is a real threat.
Say, hackers could use this in order to build their botnets, or whatever.

Does anybody could point me to articles or writings about the proof (or not) of such activity ?
Thank you.

Gilles
