CCP/EVE ONLINE suffers public source code release

Anonymous Coward writes | about 6 years ago

Security 0

An anonymous reader writes "Source code for the game client for popular MMORPG Eve Online was made available recently via BitTorrent at The Pirate Bay. Along with the torrent, a player representing themself as 'Abuser' posts a chat transcript with a CCP games representative identified as [IA]Morpheus. In a lengthy and scatological exchange, the poster of the source code attempts to get some answers about CCP's much maligned security practices, particularly concerning the rife issue of bots and scripting in their flagship game. CCP has thus far declined any comment, and all attempts for information via their support forums have been immediately deleted."
