OP  10/11/13 1:32:43 PM#1

The mods are deleting every time someone posts about this on the official site but it's pretty widely known across the web.

 

It seems that it's incredibly easy to hack into the XIV main database, I would be amazed if this didn't end up with a rollback.

 

[mod edit - please don't post links, details, pics, or videos with instructions on how to exploit]

So glad I haven't sunk any money into this game yet.. I've been sitting back waiting, watching, seeing what's going to happen with it. This is just another reason to wait even longer. This is sad, very sad.. This day and age, and they're having simple problems like this..? I haven't seen this in some lower budget games, wouldn't expect to see it. In this game though, just wow..

Have you considered that one of the reasons they delete these threads is not because they don't want people to know about it, but because you're now effectively telling anyone with database knowledge exactly where to start prodding to duplicate the exact same thing?

Currently playing - FF14ARR
Previous games - SWG, World of Warcraft, ShadowBane, Warhammer, Age of Conan, Darkfall, Planetside Asheron's Call, Everquest, Everquest 2, Too many.

guess everyone will be 50 at least, but will still have nothing to do at 50.

Seriously old news, most of us have known about this for weeks.  The concern trolling is unnecessary and gratuitous.

Remember the whole 365 billion taken out of the economy?  This was part of that.

Mtibbs and I even referenced these kind of exploits in the multitude of threads complaining about gil confiscations.  Threads that you (the OP) were involved in.

Glad to see the air below the sand is so fresh.

So they really can't do any better because the foundation for the game's construction is garbage.

This makes me feel a little better. I got "cheated" because the game is garbage because the developers are incompetent.

Why do you still play knowing all this?

 

edit: Is it just a matter of time, then, until someone finds a more-major exploit and as a result SE takes your level 90 gear or de-levels you? When you are mad and want to express your angry experiences here, then, who will you make fun of as you've done some of us? Yourself?

I think it's gotten to the point where people are just tired of hearing about the same thing from you. 

Right, the good ole JUST WAIT - THE WORLD WILL BLOW UP....next time argument.  *yawn*

I play because it's a good game.  It's fun and well worth the money.

im subbed and enjoying the game and will continue to do so for some time to come.

 

however, that doesn't stop me from wanting to know wth is going on with SE and their incompetence. i want to know /because/ i care, not because i hate or troll.

People that read the official forums or Reddit.  There have been several screenshots of this happening, just got to these forums significantly later.

It's bad enough that they decided to store character data client side. (Tip for MMO dev's: that a no-no) But to then have that data not go through any form of validation whatsoever when being sent server side?! Is there a word in any language whatsover to adequately describe the level of FAIL being displayed here?!

I'll be sure to warn any friends of mine to stay far, far away from this game.

this is not a troll thread for everyone. i do not spend all my spare time on reddit, et al., so finding out these things here is necessary for me.

Wow thought I had heard it all. 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

Yea this is new info to me.  Its funny how people are trolling this thread by saying its a troll thread, kinda ironic.  Fanboys will go to any length to protect their MMO.

 

  I didnt read the exact details of this hack but if its simple sql injection, someone is probably getting fired.

Judging from SE's past every time someone took advantage of an exploit in such a blatant way, after a while there were massive bannings. Hell they were banning even people that were in close proximitiy to them just to be sure.

Usually I just get a good laugh when the people that hacked to get their things started bitching about how "unfairly" they were banned.

$500 Backer to 2015's Top New MMO... The Repopulation!

10/11/13 6:53:06 PM#17

I don't get why anyone would get angry about a thread popping up here thats 3 week old news about a very serious problem that has a severe effect on a game, especially a PvE focused game. Economy is everything in a PvE MMO and if that gets out of whack within the first month, then takes 3-6 months to completely fix, you've already had the snowball effect screw everyone else over.

Doesn't matter if this is old news and frankly, 3 weeks isn't really that old since it hasn't been proven yet that they stopped it, let alone fixed it. As many have said, this is 2013, MMO's have been out for almost 20 years now and this shouldn't be happening, especially since WoW which launched almost 9 years ago, being a prime example of what exploits and duping can do to an economy.

I didn't subscribe after my free month ended, so I could care less about the game at this point. I just think it's funny people would get upset about serious news, regardless of how old it is.

Funny stuff!

Its still not fixed - a guildy just reported a player leveling alchemy to 50 (from lvl 17) in less than 2min.

Such a huge exploit needs to be addressed ASAP, other MMOs would be in immediate maint mode with servers offline if you could send bugus DB commands from your client granting you mass XP and levels.

The fact that this has been going on for weeks is a real shame.

This is why I have not subbed yet, I am waiting for SE to prove to me they give rats arse and will do something about the issues they are having and will actually fix them.

 

The top few that come to mind are the massive botting, the AOE lag issues and this, which has been known for awhile now. 

 

Like Alamareth says the game is fun but unlike Alamareth I will not put my head in the sand and  make excuses or be an apologist for SE because I ultimately want them to take us seriously and improve the game.

I have always felt the best way to encourage companies to do the right thing is with your wallet or lack of along with making sure people are aware of what is what so they can make an informed and accurate decision before purchasing a game.

This is news worthy. I don't think I've heard anything as bad in a major mmorpg. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few articles from the major gaming sites.
