What do you do?
I help pentest the Flash MMO AdventureQuest Worlds and lead the voluntary security team known as the White Hats. Used to develop for HackThisSite.org. By day I’m a Web app contractor.
What are the biggest changes you see happening in your industry?
Penetration testing in general? There’s no telling, security is a rapidly changing field. There’s always some unexpected vulnerability around the corner.
What opportunities and challenges will these changes bring about?
You always have to adapt and stay up-to-date. As a white hat, your job is to try and stay one step ahead of the black hats whenever possible.
What are your biggest goals?
To make a career out of penetration testing online games. There are game testers that do it professionally, and there are penetration testers, but I don’t think anyone who specializes as an MMO Pentester.
Who and what would you need to reach your goals fast?
Good connections with big name MMOs mostly. Maybe a few more languages under my belt as well.
Finally, who should contact you and why?
Anyone wanting to discuss computer security or possible job offers in that field. Also, anyone with a major game-breaking exploit in AQW. xD
