Join us on YouTube or Facebook to learn how hacking works. Today we’re going to learn how security researchers work. Adrian Bednarek is a security analyst at Baltimore’s Independent Security Evaluators (ISE), and today he’ll be showing us how he’s broken into popular Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games.

Bednarek will show how exploits could be used on Elder Scrolls OnlineDark Age of Camelot, and Wildstar. To be clear, Bednarek has reported these exploits to the game developers and they are now patched.

Bednarek has been reverse engineering, writing low level tools to aid in the reverse engineering process, and creating custom exotic exploits for over 20 years. He specializes in reverse engineering proprietary communications protocols, especially those of MMORPG’s. In many cases he has created tools and workflows to circumvent anti tampering, software and or hardware fingerprinting countermeasures.
