#1934183 new neopets security vulnerability, beware everyone!

Posted by spotify95 on 28 December 2015 - 02:35 PM

A friend's account fell victim of this exploit. She was frozen within the next hours of accepting the "flash update". She either got frozen for self protection or the thief self froze it after stealing everything. Anyway, it's been a month now and we lost the hope of getting it back. Tickets have been sent, but no one answered them.

 

Oh dear - so basically put, anyone who fell victim of the exploit lost their account, and most (if not all) of the items? That's terrible...

 

Hope it all goes well for them and that it gets resolved, but otherwise, best bet would be to (unfortunately) start over with a new account...

Yep, they were.


Whatever they were doing, I can only presume it was to try and steal NPs. I ended up getting a PM from the aforementioned member but the link had expired before I could read the PM. Thank goodness for that, otherwise they could have wiped my account clean...

 

edit: Just saw this message from TNT, so everything should be ok.

 

 

 

  • SECURITY UPDATE from TNT: In order to address some of the concerns and comments made by our players from this past weekend, please be aware that a recent security update was made to better optimize your experience on the site. Let us start by reassuring all of you that it is important to us that our Neopets users are able to run flash apps and games on our site safely. And because of that, we have restricted access through Flash from non-Neopets sites. If you run a Neopets fan-site and this new restriction breaks something on your site, please feel free to contact us through our support channels for further information and instructions from our team. Thank you!




#1918589 Updating Item Database for Non-Advanced Members

Posted by spotify95 on 12 October 2015 - 12:59 PM

All of them had the wrong Object ID so they couldn't be added to the database. ;) Jellyneo has a good guide for how to find an Object ID for an item:

Thank you, much appreciated! Didn't know that was how you found the Object ID.

 

I thought it came from when you opened an item, and you got this link:

 

http://www.neopets.c...j_id=1844926139

 

That explains - I'll sort it out now :)

 

Edit: Sent it in again with the Item ID using the method you linked me to. Is that any better?
