Past Sunday we had the 5th WebiTalks meetup. This time about Security in Flash Applications and Games.
It was very interesting to see that at the same time we announced the meetup, two interesting debates about tweaking, changing and winning online Flash based games using various sniffing techniques started at Flashoo, the Israeli Flash community forums (Security in Flash games tests, Memory access tweaking).

To summarize the meetup, it was a fun & pleasant meetup with 30 attendees followed by a good discussion and great responses for more meetups of that kind.

Lior Bruder – who gave the presentation did a great job, outlining most of the basic mistakes developers do and don’t do, leaving their apps and games opened for intruders.

As always we had a gathering at the local bar after the meetup, those who could had a beer, those who couldn’t had Orange juice… :\

I got a chance to meet new members of WebiTalks. Had a nice conversation about general security in web applications/games.
Met Elad Cohen, and his new backgammon platform: GammonShark, an online backgammon system. Elad has an interesting approach on developing the game and making it profitable, first by providing APIs and many features that enable people to host the game on their servers, hold their own backgammon rooms, create affiliates and make money. Elad suggested a new meetup Idea about hacking online games – let us know if you like it by voting on the page.

I think there is much interest for a follow up meetup, now focusing on creating secured architecture while writing games and applications. Also discussing security holes and approaches in more depth and more widely including server side and JavaScript. If you’re interested or would like to talk at a meetup – drop me a note below or join WebiTalks.

And ofcourse a huge thank you goes to our great event sponsors –

  • Fundamentally, y3- a flash game directory allowing you to choose any game that you wanted to play with it without paying for anything. The different game categories are located at the left corner of the screen to help you surf the site better, there when you choose one like Racing for instance, it will appear a new screen that shows all the games under such category. Each kind of flash game includes its own feature to make you identify each one better. As a result, it’s easier to access, you will not bored from all those recurring games that you see from one site to another, because further incorporated various games to make your gaming experience much better. As long as you visit their new site, you will be able to unveil many innovative games that are expected to make a name in gaming history someday. Another interesting change that the site underwent is its design. How does this mean? The site was able to eradicate all those unnecessary banners and advertisements that are inherent on the site back then. Nevertheless, because of the change, y3 is now able to remain simple yet adorable so the loading of the games that people are used to play within the site will come quick and easy. It’s no good waiting for so long just to make. Morever, free online games play an important role in the organization of the internet world. Maybe if there aren’t sites like y3, people would not even be interested in staying in front of the computer for such a long time. Fortunately, now we have them. And what makes us really grateful is the truth. So next time only you stay at home and have nothing to do, the way to kill time is visiting the new and improve y3 and enjoy their new games. Now if you still would like to stick on their habitual games, there is nothing to fret about because you can also find them. Just look for them at the game categories situ on the left side
