Someone has started to pays good shelves to Acclaim.Someone accessed from inside the domain of Acclaim (sure someone on the inside, because they are the only ones to do it – email@example.com) and started to attack from inside Acclaim forum (breach of security) and the players using confidential account informations such as registration e-mails. I’m not sure if this attack was extended to dynamic and environmental factors in game play. Who knows what that guy or girl change, not as we would be in a good situation now.
This attack, as a coincidence or not, we can’t be sure of anything, has the date on the departure of Acclaim Acid, the head of GMs. It started with the addition to MSN the mails of some players and with questions about VGM team. I don’t know which are the selection criteria because I don’t have all the picture yet to tell the key points where he wanted to ‘touch’.The player nixford, who posted that was contacted is one of those who used FC PQ bug and he is from Romania .
If you remember our debate with Hermit, in terms of address, is the same story. Address : firstname.lastname@example.org was created ad hoc. VGM team, as view was always a controversial issue. The players feel attracted by that team, many still want there and that person or those know this fact and have exploited it.
1.From where that person has players MSN/Y addresses ?
2.Can anyone use @acclaim.com/domain?
It is clear that it is someone from inside Acclaim and it is clear that us as persons/players can’t make an adress to the domain @acclaim.com, because it is register by Acclaim company.
@acclaim.com is register to (this is public information, can be found on any domain site):

Than, many of Guest rubrics are edited with the title: ‘Fuke Foke F@ke heh Sitesadmin@’. Also, their first rubric is edited and has writen the number 1000. Even my guide was edited. I wonder if that can be done automatic or manually. As you can see in the title it is the word that Historian love so much : ‘Fuke’ , ‘Foke’,’ F@ke’.
This shows once again the vulnerability of Acclaim as company and give evidences that our ‘data’ are not stored in a safe environment and anyone can use them as he or she wishes.If Acclaim does not realize the seriousness of the situation, then they should start read the law of electronic storage of personal data of users. I am really afraid for my credit card details when I bought coins.
Asking for player personal details or providing personal details
You cannot ask for, give or provide anyone’s personal details (including full real name, phone number, address, age, etc.) Acclaim allows you to post IM and email information in your forum profile for players to see, however, you cannot and should not provide additional information to anyone.
So Historian, you the smart guy and all Acclaim leaders, what you do in this situation?… when that person has all the personal dates of players, he don’t even has to ask but he or she is using them as he or she wishes. You will ban a domain @acclaim? I can’t stop from laughing.
This is a historic moment: the birth of the employee Acclaim hater.
