Dan Petro, lead researcher, gave a talk titled, “Stealing a Password Through Interpretive Dance and Other Wild Video Game Hacks” where he dropped six really fun remotely exploitable hacks for Super Smash Bros: Melee and Magic: The Gathering open source applications and libraries. Videos of the presentations are below.
