Thanks, Dragossh. like i said, innocent, but rather than a show of disrespect it's apparent to me it was simply a lack of oversight. there are those who do show disrespect when they do these things even if they claim otherwise. but it seems to have garnered the same attention these things tend to stir up. that's why people ask nicely that it only happen where acceptable.

Dragossh brings up a good point (he's not the first) that these things *can* happen puts URU at risk...
... that's what bothers me...

While the internal client makes it easier to do things like this, it's quite possible to do just about every single hack you can imagine without that special build. There is absolutely no security built in to the servers, so all it takes is someone with the right motivation. The information on how to connect to the servers with your own code has been in the wild for a long, long time.

Cyan's decision not to release the server code contributes to the continued lack of security. The security flaws are already well-known, and we can't fix anything server-side without access to the code. Keeping that code hidden gains nothing and significantly decreases the chances that the security flaws will be fixed.

while i understand Cyan only has the capacity for limited commitment to URU these days it would be a shame for any lack of necessary attention to finally put to bed this thing that so much work has been poured in to after so many false ends...

fixing security seems like priority number one on their checklist unless they'd just prefer to *hope* nothing happens...

I'm hoping, IMHO, that security is a number one (1) issue....I'll wait for that elusive spark in Minkata and go back every night and hope to find it and be the first to report it to the rest of you...geez loueeze..It's free for cripes sake!!!!

On another note....I'm MORE than happy with what Cyan and EVERYONE involved has attempted to provide AND given to us in whatever time WE think is acceptable...
