They will also remind users of the cyber world of the decadal of safety tips for gamers.
The project, as discussed in presentationnot looking to ultimately have a hold of playersbut it seeks that this is its way of preventing users from falling victim to cybercriminals.
This decision is taken considering that the world of video games have changed drastic. Now all devices are absolutely connected. In contrast, before only the console was used, while now all kinds of plugins are added: headphones, watch, speakers, console and phone, all with intelligent software through which personal data circulates.
This gives cybercriminals a surface to feed on. All data contained in these unitssuch as photographs, messages or passwords, is the file of a person in a game, it is something very valuable, especially considering that video games are the order of the day, especially in Spain.
Some of the crimes that netizens can commitand as mentioned in the paper, they are follow: unauthorized access to the camera; image manipulation; care, imitation; Cyber bullying; sexting; extortion, access to inappropriate content; malware; social engineering; fishing; among others ransomware, misappropriation or account hijacking.
