I logged in this morning to find that I had a message. Turns out its from someone I don't know, qwer1234 . The messages is an ad for a web page that is like IGN. Selling gil, items, and PL. Seems the RMT are becoming desperate. Can't they just leave us alone? This only days after receiving an almost server wide tell from crabber for a web page with a possible trojan.

Here is a post on RMT email.

Edit:

Well once again, people are getting RMT messages.

You can set your POL Handle to be searchable only by friends, but it appears that they have a list of people they sent to last time. So people that did change it are still getting messages from RMT. This time its from "opopo" .

Not sure what SE can do about this, suppose you could b-list them, but they'll probably change which character sends the message each time. I don't know what can be done about this, since banning the ones sending the message really won't help, they'll just change the character. Any ideas ???

Hey Tsuzee, I also got the e-mail through the pol mail. Now the e-mail address I use is generic one that pol assigned, were talking 1 letter and 11 numbers. I dont see them sending to random e-mail up that length. If you ask me one of the SE systems has been compromised and info was leaked.

I had reported to a gm, he was glad it was reported, said he will look into the message, states he is unable to see our e-mail, ofcourse when viewed in game in hits the chat log so maybe he can read it there, gave gm the sender and the website.

edit: yes got a new message from opopo, and I had set my handle to only be searched by friends after the first message. I had also place block on first sender, and the new message still came through. This suggests they are doing these messages by another means than just searching for handles or they have stored the list of prev handles they had and are re-sending to them.

Assuming this is by handle at all, the only solution i see is to delete old handle, unlink all characters, create a new handle and re-do friends list. That is no guarantee of safety though as it is just a guess the rmt are working in that way.

edit again: per gm conversation after the second message, he suggested that I do a virus scan and change my password. I am thinking they are not fixing this and think it our client fault that it is out there.

If having an issue with card rejected, make sure your noscript is allowing globalcollect site gcsip.com as that is where transaction is routed when I updated.

there's a search system within the PlayOnlineViewer, so that's how you can send messages without being in someone's friendlist

that's how they did it
no compromised server

and Lego, do you still play?

I am aware of the search option and to my understanding simply allowed a "want to be friends" type message, regardless I had after the first message marked my handle as only searchable by friends, and this second message from opopo came through.

2 of my 3 accounts also got this message. I'm not sure when this happened or if maybe it's always been this way but, i noticed that now when u /sea "anybody"
not only does it give u the option to invite or sending a tell, it now also says send message.. I looked up a random person that i saw run by me and sure enough it said gave me the option to send a message. Now i didn't actually attempted to send the message but i thought it was odd sein as in 4 years of playin i never noticed it before. Anyway .. that's how they might be getting the info.. requries no searching just noticeing the names of players around you.
