real term that fully applies in this situation.
While you're correct in that once a system's compromised you could do virtually anything (keylog them for personal info, for example), I don't particularly understand why it is you're averse to the idea that people are being abused; they are, and while it's pretty hard to definitively prove once and for all the fault lies with YourKO, this much at least is fact.
Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've last dealt with a private server (and consequently an attack), so I unfortunately cannot back up my claims (I think I provided logs in the past when I had them in front of me, however). The interesting thing about the nature of the attacks, was that afterwards -- when cross-referencing with player data, it was found that a small amount (english private server, after all) was comprised of those playing the server at the time (and no, they were definitely participating in the flooding, with separate connections and the same data being flooded), and those not playing the server (but played it recently enough to most likely still hold the IP address, i.e. be attributed to that user).
This wasn't just limited to a single server, either; this was found to be the same case with a handful of servers (at least 3) I'd looked at.
So either people really like to flood the servers they play (it's the new thing! Show your support by attacking the server!), or they're all part of a botnet, being used to attack servers at the whim of another.
You decide (personally I prefer the former, but that's just me).
if you really think this server is "safe" go play it!
This guy seems to be full of shit.
Everything working smoothly over yourko. Alot of people ingame 24/7, all exp-spots in emc&cz taken on most actives times.
Just waiting to get some levels and then hit the PK 24/7. If someone is interested about playing, hit me with pm!
^This isn't an advertisement topic to go support a guy with a drug addiction with donations. The owner at YourKO is an idiot and doesn't have a fucking clue what in the world he is doing. So, no not everything is working smoothly as I am pretty sure YourKO was botnetted a couple days ago, and a lot of people in-game? They are all turks who don't have a damn clue what the hell the guy is doing to them. Also their panel isn't even complete and for some reason pushed it into their main site.
YourKO sucks. The staff sucks.
Hey! I can count and list too!
1. It didn't show anything about the server, showed that there's something fishy with the client.
2. "I dont care if YourKO is behind purchased botnet attacks" Shows how stupid you are, borderline autistic and retarded really. (And about your parenthesis, no shit ever happens to yourko, wonder why?)
3. So did we.
4. "Ah, ok so in the case they DID make users part of the botnet it's okay now guys, it's all in the past, the .exe is clean now" - All I read.
5. The fuck does this have to do with anything?
6. Wish they banned ignorant people that don't care, this is a warning topic, he found weird shit and wants to let the community know.
7. We do, but they get flooded and fucked up by YKO.
Loyal Forum user.
1. It shows there WAS something fishy with the Client.
2. When people fail to find and objective point to argue about they usually resort to personal attacks, you are "so retarded", omg you are a complete "idiot". See how he attacks but doesnt provide any sort of justification as to why he believes this. Ill explain it to you very simple: All servers attack with DDOS. DDOS attacks are not uncommon this days. YourKo isnt the bad guy for purchasing DDOS attacks, if that was the cayse every single server would be the bad guy.
3. Good for you. Sadly you scanned the old Client.
4. You read wrong. It means its safe to play now.
5. Everything. It shows people are playing it at a massive level. It shows PK will be super active, it shows it is a good place to play if you want a hard farm server. It is a direct indicator on to how much fun you will be able to have. More people = more fun. Massive Turks = massive PK fun.
6. He wants to attack YourKo. Since he cant DDOS it, he did this. If anyone thinks Professor is a saint, that he is our saviour and only cares for the community, is wrong in my humble opinion. He cares about money, like we all do (yes me too). YourKo is a threat, specially if it makes it (which I dont think it will) on the long run.
7. Who is we ? So according to you "we" (you and whomever else completes your group) have been encouraging players to play other servers by praising how good they are and focusing on the positive aspects of this servers but sadly YourKo floods this servers so they fail. I think you are full of shit :P Could be wrong but I dont think I have ever seen a topic made by you where you encourage people to play private servers. Anyhow you are saying that YourKo is behind ever single DDOS attack, sure buddy.
I will start playing YourKo. The only way to know if ill be turned into a zombie and know if there is something wrong. I know this is not the case for a lot of people. But I use this PC for gaming purposes alone. So if it gets infected and I have to format it, its not even a big deal lol. I dont loose shit. Ill report back on what I find.
Lol more people than the launch of Ionia? are you fucking retarded? or retarded?
Just to confirm, I had a few errors on my pc, (before downloading Yourko) with speed and shit, my pc went off to the biggest most trusted computer repair stores in my area. He ran everything to test and see what my problem was, he therefore went through my PC with a fine tooth comb, he couldn't find any, Viruses, Keylogs, anything of any bad nature. Whilst they may have hidden the virus or Trojan really really well, for a computer guy to not find anything when sweeping the computer to me means this current client is safe. Don't hold me 100%, but im just explaining the info that I have.
