Korean-headquartered security solutions company AhnLab, Inc. has announced the launching of its Hackshield technology to target U.S. game developers and publishers of massively multiplayer server-based computer games, following the technology's creation and testing in the MMO-heavy South Korean market. Hackshield is an online security program with immediate signature and module updates that allow developers to create more secure online worlds, and prevents a significant number of common hacking attacks. These include the detecting and blocking of hacking tools, protection from memory hacking, network packet encryption, data file and execution file encryption, blocking of SpeedHack programs that tamper with the system time, prevention of runtime modifications, blocking of message hooking, blocking of auto-mouse operations, and prevention of counterfeiting and modification of program files. "As gamers’ spending time in this space has gone up, hackers have become more aggressive," said Charles Kim, CEO of AhnLab. "The problem is that developers don’t know whether or not their in-house approach to long-term online security will be effective. That's where Hacksheild comes in - it is the airtight alternative to throwing crucial development resources at the hacker problem."
