A four terminal Gaussian network composed of a source, a destination, an eavesdropper and a jammer relay is investigated when the jammer relay is causally given the source message. The source aims to increase the achievable secrecy rates, whereas the jammer relay aims to decrease it. To help the eavesdropper and to decrease achievable perfect secrecy rates, the jammer relay can use pure relaying and/or send interference to assist eavesdropping. The problem is formulated as a zero-sum game and the saddle point solutions are found. The results are compared to the case when the jammer relay is not informed about the source message.
