today a new spambot appeared on Morai server, around 12:30 servertime. (3.30 am pst)

he whispered every character on the server, not at the same time, but in a pretty high speed.
the spambot was NOT in range of the characters he whispered, so it seems he found a way to access the database somehow. there were 2 different messages, advertising some "noname soft" which the player was supposed to google up on the internet. the other message was pretty similar, but got send anonymous..it just appeared on the screen as a whisper without name.

    pretty nice that you notice things like that, but you really make me wonder if you are on 24/7 xDDDD

    Hope that doesn't result in server downtimes to "fix" this problem...but well that is likely gonna happen.

    hello, my onlinetimes are not subject of this thread, but i can ensure you that i am online more than 27 hours a day f:cool

    it seems the spambot is located somewhere in the middle of archosaur and saves all names that appear in t-screen - and later whispers them. im still curious how it manages to whisper without a "sending name".
    i also got told the advertised site contains a keylogger.

    Could you send me a screenshot? I'll poke a GM when they are online. That one sounds rather serious.

    It's not a pm from someone, people cannot reply to it, even if they wanted.

    Sorry for the double post, but for everyone that have that spam do you see a shop lvl 1 just under the warsoul spirit npc?

    On HL there's a shop under it, we cannot target it and we think it's maybe the bot.
