At Cyrex, we were entrusted by Plarium to conduct White Box penetration testing on Mech Arena, a mobile game built on a custom engine. Our comprehensive assessment encompassed both the live and gameplay services, ensuring a thorough evaluation of its security. We focused on scrutinizing various core features of the game, including physics and ranged combat mechanics, the reward system, inventory and slots management, the chat system, weapons functionality, and matchmaking capabilities.
Work carried out on Mech Arena
Working alongside the Plarium team was a pleasure, and their decision to opt for White Box testing enabled us to perform an extensive deep-dive into their code, uncovering potential vulnerabilities and weak points in their security measures. Through our rigorous analysis, we successfully identified multiple active vulnerabilities, prioritizing their immediate resolution. Additionally, we provided the Plarium team with expert guidance on addressing weaker points that could be exploited by hackers, bolstering the overall security of the game.
The collaboration with Plarium allowed us to deliver valuable insights and recommendations, ensuring the protection of Mech Arena’s integrity and enhancing its overall security. Our comprehensive White Box approach enabled us to uncover and rectify vulnerabilities, ultimately fortifying the game against potential threats. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Plarium team and look forward to future collaborations.
