We have a game developed in Macromedia Flash using AS 2.0. We are being having problems of people trying to fraud us. We identify the IP or the customer and what we do is to proceed to block them off the game server. The problem is that is very easy to come up with a work arround and come back and try again.
What we are looking is to collect the harddrive serial number and store it on our database running a verification process at the begining of the session
On other downloadable games that we have is not a problem at all using the windows API but we do not know how to do it from flash on a Internet Browser.
Our game is accesed using a Internet Browser, after you login a pop up window will come up with the game it self, so from that point on is our quest to get the HD serial number.
