[OPEN]IMPORTANT! New method of Phishing, and why Oasis was down for a while earlier today.

Post by Ariley on 5/13/2012, 7:23 pm

I feel it's necessary to copy/paste a bit of the post I made on the staff board, so that you are all aware of what happened, and that you know that this is a threat of having your account stolen.


Holy shit guys, I got it. This is going to be a long read, but YOU NEED TO READ IT. It's unbelievable what happened.

Player named snorsken logged on on May 6th. FinalWorld was, I think, the only staff member who was on. Now when FinalWorld had logged on before snorsken first joined, he logged on with an IP starting in 24, connected to a location in Illinois, where I know FinalWorld lives. Remember that. Snorsken then said some other server had stolen our spawn and were bagging on it. FinalWorld was given the IP of the server, logged off, went to check it out. The IP snorsken gave Final was the IP snorsken had just logged in with, one starting in 69.

Somehow, snorsken used that to phish Final's account and get his password, because almost immediately after Final left to go on the "server" snorsken had mentioned, a "FinalWorld" logged in under the same IP snorsken was using, one starting in 69. Seeing as Final is an admin, snorsken then used Final's account to op himself (snorsken) and another account he has, called "javahut." He also gave himself ban exemptions and a few various other things that I've taken care of.

Everything that has to do with snorsken after that leaves every staff member innocent. He had access to FinalWorld's account, which proves Final innocent, as far as I can tell in the logs. He, at one point, nicknamed himself WesleyMD, and was parading around as Wes, but Wes hasn't been on in 5 days.

BAM. Everyone is innocent, and we just learned about a new method of account Phishing through our dear friend FinalWorld. Imo, case closed.

I thought Snor was wes the whole time. When I was on, he deop'd broad to default for "Admin Abuse". I had a funny feeling of this player from the first time I saw him.

wow, i actually kinda trusted that guy. It's kinda funny because in the last week he was nicknamed into other names, wonder if he did that himself or it's just ironic he was the victim of that and ends up being a hacker. Also, I'm confused in the whole IP thing, he gave Final a player IP that was mistaken as a server IP?

You can't handle the truth.

I get those funny feelings all the time. Sometimes there right, sometimes there wrong. I bet I would have gotten a funny feeling about this guy too

To be completely honest, I had no idea that this would happen. He gave me a random IP that I didn't know, and he said they were slandering my server. I didn't see any harm in checking it out. I mean, what was he going to do? Use my IP to do stuff to make himself OP? psh as if. So, I go to investigate, and this happens. I had no idea that he was going to do all that our that any of this was even possible.

I hope Final has changed his password by now.

idk, i just don't like hacked clients it's fine to barrow a friends account but stealing accounts is a dick move

Look, if you're not going to read the post, don't post. It's as simple as that. Plus, that's not even what happened.
