    Not necessarily. While definitely rude, what he(or she) said was not actually that horrible. Trendy isn't some thin-skinned nancy that can't take criticism, but we'll see what happens.

    Launcher is borked. This looks to be far more serious than a DDoS attack.

    The launcher is affected by the connection to the server. Because we're in the middle of a DDoS right now it is likely that it'll appear weird or have something generic up.

    You folks realize he knows what he is doing, he knows he is affecting a bunch of other games, he is watching these threads, and getting off on getting a rise out of the people he is affecting...then he boasts about it on his Twitter page...

    Bloody oath she isn't, to put up with this community she'd have to have the thickest skin in the world :pensive:

    They keep saying on the launcher "normal gameplay isn't affected", but IT IS.

    Hey everyone! Just a few notes.

    Yes, we are aware. It's complicated and very involved. That being said this is something we are taking very, very seriously.

    We won't comment on any details of our security operations in response to this as to do so would potentially compromise security measures taken/taking.

    I am reiterating the necessity of following the Community Rules and Policies. If you begin to flame or threaten others in this thread, this is highly inappropriate.

    The team is investigating the issues currently affecting Captains from accessing Holodeck.

    Question: Since this hacker has been attacking PWE for so many months, what is PWE doing to go after them and permanently stop them?

    This a reminder that I still expect people to follow the Community Rules and Policies. Frustration is understandable, but flaming and outright threats or comments of violence are not.

    Surely the tech guys can do something.

    Every minute the server is down Cryptic is losing money. They have every motivation to do anything they can to fix it as quickly as possible. That being said, what exactly do you think they should be doing that they probably aren't already?

    People have said it over and over, contact local authorities. Its not hard. This small child is annoucing to the world...he is not hiding it. The evidence is enough to bust him for low end Cyber terroism. However people telling trendy to do there job are kinda dumb, Trendy is doing there job. Laughingtrendy has been doing an awesome job.

    That's assuming the local authorities care. The biggest internet troll of all time was a kid in Canada who SWATted, stalked and DDOSed pretty much anyone he felt like it - there were dozens of separate cases, solid evidence of who he was, multiple local law enforcement branches in the victims jurisdictions co-operating to gather evidence. The local authorities where the kid lived? They did squat. For years. Since all of his victims were in the US, no authorities here could do anything to him without their cooperation, and they didn't cooperate.

    Chances are, since it's almost certain that they know who this dweeb is at this point, is that he lives somewhere where law enforcement either doesn't care or is too busy doing other things, and the FBI/Interpol don't have jurisdiction to take action.

    It sucks, but that's the way it is most of the time.

    Thanks Trendy, we are grateful to have someone who actually explains what is being done. Obviously you can disclose details and people need to understand that.

    PWE/Trendy can't say as this can potentially compromise them.

    Not to belabor the point, but Trendy is right. Naturally, we're all frustrated (I was in the middle of Surface Tension), but screaming about it on here likely won't make much of a difference. The only people who can do anything are folks like Trendy, and being as this is their job (and they certainly seem to be very good at it), I'm certain they're doing everything possible. So, let's let them do their job, knowing there's nothing more we can do.

    I work in engineering. In any tech field, cyber security is a very serious concern, and no matter how well-guarded your servers are, there's always a way to make this happen. Do bear in mind that, for most people who do this, this is pretty much all they do. It's practically their job...as sick as that sounds. Unfortunately, there's only so much you can do to stop someone who's so hell-bent on causing electronic destruction.

    I think this guy's on the other side of the world, so International stuff makes things complicated.

    Yeah. Tried to get in to wrap up daily refine but that will have to wait for now.

    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    It's fairly well known he's from the UK. So it's up to them to do something.

    Read theprevious pages of the thread, its a server attack from some low life. Not much we as players can do until this idiot descides to go play in the real world.
