Welcome! Please do your best to protect the company's server.
Well, first day on the job! Let's hope I don't mess this up.
WARNING: Server integrity has been compromised.
The new player will be initiated through a short instruction set & tutorial of how to use basic tools, such as Antivirus and Antispyware to protect the server.
Antivirus: Outdated virus signature list
Incoming Requests: 967
As requests are coming in, it will be up to the player to discern which requests are legitimate, and how to handle the malicious requests. A "threat neutralized" animation and sound will play when a bug is destroyed.
It will be inevitable in most cases that a malicious bug will break through your cyber defenses. This will be visually represented through a coloured "blink" or flash effect on the server.
Better get to work! Let's see.. - Update antivirus - Reactivate the firewall - Deploy new antispyware software - Sweep the local network for any suspicious activity
Firewalls can be disabled from time to time (due to malicious requests), therefore reactivating them is necessary in filtering out the bad requests. Updating / purchasing new software will help strengthen the company's cyber defense.
That doesn't look very good...
Some requests will have unique traits or abilities, in which can sometimes only be activated upon meeting a set of special conditions.
It will be up to player to determine what tools will be effective, all while managing the company's happiness and budget for cyber security which will determine the final score.
