Unexpected applications of hacking skillsBrandon Falk

Date : 04 June 2021 à 14:45 — 45 min.

While we all know the standard places where hacking is useful, like, finding some sweet 0-day or gaining unauthorized access to some wicked server, the skills of hacking seem to be more widely applicable. I'm going to go through a few projects I've had in the past year, which were not directly related to hacking, but my success was largely due to my hacking experience. The problem solving skills we learn while hacking, the low level knowledge of computers, and the healthy skepticism of how things actually work end up changing the way I approach problems. I'll share the details of how I made the world's most advanced MapleStory cheats by pushing the limits of what the server's anti-cheat detections would let me get away with, as well as how I used fuzzing and AVX-512 programming to become the #1 Horde Priest in World of Warcraft Classic... without actually cheating!
