The server is back up. Here's what went down.
Last night I was
informed that someone's old account was missing all valuables. I took a
look and found all the items were traded to Shiggydiggy on 5-11. Mr Foxter was
logged into the account that was looted. Before this, Telescope tried to
log in and saw he was banned.
This is around the time Mr Foxter
was losing his staff privileges, and Telescope and Mr Foxter were
always close. Telescope, presumably in reaction to Mr Foxter being
demoted, chose to look through old files he had from running the server
way back when. Some of these passwords were still current. They checked
out and looted 5 accounts and over 100,000,000 gold worth of wealth.
persons involved were banned (including accounts items were traded to
and stored on) and the affected accounts will be getting their items
This was about 4 hours of detective work into the morning.
325 accounts are still using at risk passwords that Telescope still has. These accounts have been locked and their owners will have to contact staff to unlock them.
If you're getting a banned message please contact staff in game on another account.
!Change your password and pin regularly, PLEASE!
Oh, also we scored a slightly better server package with the same provider. It's double the ram and a little bit cheaper. Win-win!
