    Default White hat Hackers - Growtopia

    A white hat hacker is a computer security specialist who breaks into protected systems and networks to test and asses their security. White hat hackers use their skills to improve security by exposing vulnerabilities before malicious hackers (known as black hat hackers) can detect and exploit them.

    Nowadays Growtopia has many hackers in the game who exploit Bugs and Glitches in Growtopia to gain world locks or just to show off some “Bizarre” or “impossible” types of actions which aren’t possible to do regularly (Such as flying)

    Obviously these players get banned, but in the end the prime reason these malicious hackers hack the game is to get items “way more easily and efficiently”. but instead of tackling these hackers maybe actually reward them with a own unique item or a white hat which is given by developers themselves to these users who help solve exploits and bugs (if they don’t obviously exploit it themselves). One game for an instance Rocket league uses this feature and it has been a big help in terms of solving bugs, if not there has been 18 game breaking bugs that have been solved in the game, from spawning in multiple cars to ranking against way lower leveled users (Grand champion against bronze for an example) and these are solved thanks to normal users who have decided to help out instead of doing evil. (The item is the most expensive item in the game as well) Obviously hacking is wrong, but this could actually help Growtopia and actually give these users something exceedingly rare. Might sound bad but would you rather give a person a unique item or have a huge rollback and chaos in the community.

    Voice your opinions on this

    (not that you get this exceedingly rare item for giving a minor bug but I mean like something huge like what Nexica did)

    It would definetly help Growtopia tackle a lot of exploits.

    Sounds pretty good, but finding trusted hackers that would test that, would be difficult.

    Not exactly necessary to get people specified for this task - rather anyone from the community who happens to have stumbled upon these bugs.

    This may be a good idea to have white hackers but for the security of the game, we will never know what are their intentions in the near future. They might betray Ubisoft one day.

    Precisely.

    It's a risk if they do it. The whole game's in danger already with these hackers being in-game. They can't even trust people to become a moderator, how about if they were to get white hackers?

    Simply giving bounties for exploits if the exploits are real and reproduceable, or more expensive dirrectly hiring real white hat hackers not the hackkids of gt.

    This is clearly what I meant by what I said. not that they will actually hire someone.
