Server instability - 08/23/2014


SWGEmu would like to officially thank the person that helped us pinpoint and fix the exploitable imperfections in our code, but we cant.

Bug was already found and fixed on TC: Nova, so our "uber hacker" just took advantage of the fact that it was not applied to Basilisk yet and the fact that TheAnswer was in bed. Basilisk was on auto reboot and that is the reason why it crashed and came back online 3 or 4 times. Eventually TheAnswer saw what was going on and fix was applied to Basilisk too.

But what we can do is thank you, our community, for your patience, support and apologize for the inconvenience this issue may have caused you.


Thank you all.

Any luck in determining whether Anoymous actually ganked the SoB that was trashing us yesterday? I saw some post that made the claim, and I can only hope.

On a sidebar, I suppose it is WAY too much to hope that oMa was doing it, had his computer gear fried, and we will see no more of the single person 20-rifleman-toon Acklay camper as well.

Thankyou Vlada, although we don't need to be told what happened, it's good to hear nevertheless but an apology doesn't seem necessary - we should all just be glad to be able to play whenever the server is up.

Thankyou TheAnswer for fixing the problem.

I too hope the exploiter gets a well-deserved perma-ban!

I was in bed so I missed most of the fun, but I think they were already perma-banned. That's what triggered them.

I see they ranked up a bit and took over Bas and not just cities. I'm assuming same persons/person of course....there's only a few players on Emu with that sort of mentality. The words Toys and Pram come to mind, when thinking of them.

Thanks to all the team for keeping us informed and fixing the headaches the <insert suitable words here> cause. Yay, for swgemu :)

It's unfortunate, we have in our community members that would do such a thing but we also have in our community people like TheAnswer and Vlada and the swgemu team who rise to the cause. A heart felt thanks.

There is no point, they were banned before this whole thing started.
