Before being insulting, please consider what you are writing. It clearly is NOT what you think it is. This job is for someone to communicate to the community, monitor chatter, and do database analysis. I am guessing a $40-80K USD salary for a role like this (depending on how important data analysis experience). If is more of a community admin role and less of an analyst role, salary will be on the lower end.

This is NOT a game/network developer or project lead position. If it was, they would not be calling for "Internet savvy administrator" and they would have mentioned SOMETHING about language or development experience.

Where does it indicate:
"hes the man in charge."
"hes always the one everyone asks"
"know exactly what to tell the developers"
"programmer/hackers have way more experience in exploiting games"

you do realize, off-topic, you are way too nice to people on the forums who hit the submit button before thinking right? You should try just leveling someone at some point in time thumb.gif

People who write cheats for games are usually not very good - certainly not the best in securing games. The best people for this job are probably security researchers, but this "anticheat administrator" probably won't get paid even 1/4 as much as a security researcher.

The best person for this job is a skilled security researcher who's also a gamer. It's trivial for one to figure out how to make good cheats for games, and they would also be able to figure out how to detect them with statistics.

Seriously, I would have at least applied. Know zilch about coding but, to counter hacks, that's not what it would take.
Why would you have to move to Stockholm, though..? It's 2012.
It's 2012, and that's not good enough. It probably won't be good enough until you can wander around in the office with a hologram that allows you to see through it or something.

This job probably means leading a team and communicating with other teams on a regular basis. Communication is a lot harder when you don't talk face-to-face - teams have trouble committing to a goal together, and instead work as individuals each on their own task, rather than a team. Other teams will care too little and may even ignore you at times because they can.

Detect the injectors problem solved.
You don't know what you're saying... there aren't "a handful of windows injectors"... there are a million ways to get a program to load a DLL.

Well.... there's database analysis and then there's network/packet/protocol analysis. The skillset for each is slightly different.


Security is a multi-prong approach but this job seems more like a PR/admin type job.

I could have worded that different. Lets try like this see if it makes better sense. There are only a handful of programs that is compatible with ms net frame 3, sql injection in trying to defeat an anti cheat sub-routine, that uses an md5 checksum.
So no you cant just load a dll and have it work. Remember we are talking about internet security Its done in layers. The problem would be worse than it is. Its bad enough the cheats have the code up for free grabs and tell you exactly how to use it. Sorry no if you going to ask. And NO never have and never will cheat.

I have to agree with Duckie's last post. Multi prong, multi layered. Same thing.

IMHO this will be someone for the community. One my major complaints with evenblance is the total lack of community involvement. That and its so old,,, same O same o PunkBuster. MaydeX claimed last Fri the free VIP cheat was now being detected, I dont think so
fake ban or not GGC.com

We have tried several times to contact Evenbalance and its supporters, even by using their Ticketsystem, to talk about this problem, but only had little success in doing so. Those bans have been detected fast by our system and were removed, so there was no bigger damage done. As said above, we know about this since 2008 and we relied on highest possible security measures, but as you might imagine, there is no 100% security, when the problem with PB is not fixed.
