The Game of Hacks development was directed jointly by Checkmarx CTO Maty Siman and Asaph Schulman, VP of marketing. It’s based on the 2013 OWASP Top-10, one of the most comprehensive vulnerability references available today. In a nutshell, this is an interactive solution to promote secure coding practices and AppSec awareness amongst developers.
The game can be played at 3 levels:
Once inside the game, all the player needs to do is pick the desired level of play and get started. There is also a multiplayer option where the player can invite specific
people to clash with him online. The game consists of 5 questions, with 1 minute allocated to answer each question. Correct answers and faster response times get the player more points.
This interactive platform encourages secure coding by familiarizing the players/developers with the leading vulnerabilities that are commonly exploited by malicious attackers. These include SQL injections, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF), Path Traversal and other leading techniques that are wreaking havoc today.
Game of Hacks can be played on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones.
