regarding hijacked emps-world emails
« on: December 05, 2017, 12:27:04 pm »
Hi,

I'm retired emps-world(emps-scape) player. This day i woke up, as usually checking my different emails and got this message from -(some kind of runescape private server project). I'm assuming that they somehow got their hands on hijacked emps-world player emails, now they using them to blackmail and promote their project. Maybe together we can do something about it, not only it's against the law, but it's risk to other players including me.

Ok, it's there a possibility that emps-world owners will take legal action against that private server project?

Don't think that's possible and wouldn't even be needed. After all it's traffic to our direction as well not just for them.
As stupid it may sound it actually works both ways. It's free advertising for us as well.

Thinking outside the box i agree that it's traffic, but agressive one. I have looked up their domain/ip whoIS, they're using https://www.ovh.com/ca/en hosting company, maybe we can cripple them in the cheap way like writing detailed message to their hosting provider abuse report (abuse@ovh.ca). In best case scenario they will get suspended from their own hosting company eventually lose some time and money by moving to different hosting company.

As in traffic and free advertising for us I meant that if they actually manage to grow and the community is being asked how they
found out about the server they'll find us and probably some other servers or gaming communities that has had their database hacked at some point. (And they have targeted them as well)

As for the other part of your last comment I have no idea. Maybe Thomy can give you an answer if he wants to as he knows these things far more better than anyone else here.

Yes, there are possibility that other similar communities facing the same problem.

The thing is, Thomy no need to apply here, since the real victim is the user who is receiving these mail messages. We, by meaning "We" - i mean emps-world community can get them suspended. The more complains hosting company receives - the higher chance that they will suspend blackmailing community from their cloud.

I also want to mention that the hosting company their using is not some kind of offshore cluster. Company is well-known and they look after the people, so theres a high chance.

Honestly, I like the idea


When soldiers have nowhere to run to - if their bridges have been burned - they fight much harder than they otherwise would have. When you find something that you care about enough, be prepared to burn your bridges.-Chait

Simply reporting it to OVH and waiting until they look at the case is enough to suspend their dedicated server. OVH has strict policy against these things, a server of mine was already terminated after they found out I was hosting RSPS.

This is really not the problem here though, the question is how did Emps-World get leaked? I've seen a picture of it on Rune-Server.

Yes that's it. Thanks for clarification. Regardless it's still old code and there has been a lot of changes since then.
